COLLABORATE 18 - Education for Your Interests


Prompted by COLLABORATE 17 attendee feedback, the Education Committee set out this summer to review and organize COLLABORATE 18 content in a way that would make it easier to find specific categories of interest and enhance your overall conference experience.

The result, new for COLLABORATE 18 – OAUG Forum, is an educational program organized into eight streamlined Primary Tracks aligned to an Oracle product family. Upon selection, the Primary Tracks expand to reveal more detailed Smart Tracks. Sessions will also be cross referenced by Business Goals & Desired Outcomes and Industries. The overall, redefined search navigation streamlines the process of creating a personalized conference agenda.

I’d like to thank the OAUG Education Committee volunteers, and Karen Brownfield in particular, for leading the way on this important project.

We will be releasing the COLLABORATE 18 education lineup in the next few days. I encourage you to test drive the new search functions and explore the many great sessions to begin planning your conference experience. COLLABORATE 18 takes place April 22-26, 2018, in Las Vegas, Nevada. I look forward to seeing you there!
