On Friday, March 22, 2002, a special event brought together a unique combination of individuals, from technologists to campus administrators and users, to discuss the growth, features, and future of enterprise portals. The talks were given at the University Club by Howard Strauss, a noted expert on portal technology. Over 120 people attended the event. They came from all over campus (e.g., Office of Administration, the General Library, the Medical Center, the Office of Research, University Extension, Computer Science, University Relations, Public Communications, Student Housing, Registrar's Office, Resource Management and Planning, IET, etc.). We even had a few representatives from other UC campuses, including Berkeley, Merced, and Santa Cruz.
