About SLAM 2018
The University Software Licensing Community (USLC), a CAUDIT Community of Practice, invites you to be a part of the 6th Software Licensing and Asset Management (SLAM) conference.
The theme for 2018 is Realising your SAM Value and with a community of specialists concentrating on software asset management, the conference will focus on sharing knowledge and experiences in terms of the various ways in which we can obtain value from our SAM processes and solutions.
This year’s conference will be held at a new venue – the Hotel Jen, situated in the Brisbane CBD, adjacent to the Roma Street Parklands and Transit Centre, on Wednesday 12th, Thursday 13th and Friday 14th September 2018.
The conference will showcase University initiatives and innovative approaches to licensing solutions suitable for today’s academic environment of research, teaching and administration as we deal with the increasing challenges of SAM.
We anticipate over 50 delegates from 25 - 30 universities across Australia and New Zealand, plus speakers from industry and software vendors to attend this event.
Included during the three days will be:
A vendor/sponsor free day including a CAUDIT Strategic Procurement Update, and a USLC Community of Practice workshop and planning session.
A seperate trade show for Sponsors to meet and network with attendees.
Sessions focused on Asset Management systems, Software Licensing as a Service, Contract Management (Performance and Vendor Engagement)
Facilitated sessions will include Expert Panels and Case Studies where University staff will discuss their implemented solutions and the attendees in groups will discuss and review future directions.
