MWF Conference 2011

Keynote speaker Kenn Heller engages the audience on
the opening of the first day.

In August 2011, the UCLA Office of Information Technology hosted the first Annual MWF Conference at the UCLA Faculty Center. Over two days, attendees got the opportunity to listen to sessions on a wide variety of topics given by twenty-two speakers from seven campuses. The third day then entailed a hands-on open workshop where developers came with code, questions or simply a blank slate, and members of the MWF Core Team provided support.

Based on an open invitation to all campuses in the UC system, UCLA was pleased to have representation from nine campuses, with 61 people attending in person and another 121 remotely.

team on a mobile map implementation.

The goals of the first Annual MWF Conference included:

Very pleased with its outcome, UCLA plans to open attendance for the MWF Conference 2012 to entities beyond the UC system, with special rates for higher education, non-profits and students. While the 2011 conference included only one track, the 2012 conference will have multiple tracks, likely including "Mobile Development & Architecture", "Mobile Strategy & Governance", "Mobile Learning & Services", and "Mobile Research & mHealth"

In support of the 2011 conference, the MWF team also developed a mobile & desktop compatible conference/event application with modules including news, schedule of events, registration, and feedback. It is online for reference at here. This application served as an initial proof-of-concept and prototype for the Conference/Events Tool currently under development by the UCLA Education & Collaboration Technology Architecture Group for general release to the MWF community.
