What is UC Tech 2023?

The UC Tech Annual Conference is a three-day event hosted each year by one or more of the 19 locations that comprise the University of California. The objective is to celebrate innovation and promote collaboration within the technology community. Annually, UC locations rotate hosting this popular event, now attended by hundreds of members of the UC tech community. The year it was founded in 1982, there were 20 participants. Today, it has grown to over 744 attendees (about 50% in-person and 50% online in 2023). Each day features educational talks, delivered by UC tech peers, as well as a trade floor, where you can meet vendors and others. In addition, there is an opportunity to recognize colleagues during an awards ceremony and dinner on Tuesday, July 18.

Benefits of participating include:

  1. Sharing with 744+ UC tech colleagues, including senior leaders
  2. Presentations + the awards ceremony will be recorded and available as a learning tool for registered participants and as a professional online asset to those who are featured during the conference (please apply for both opportunities)
  3. Photographers and bloggers will document the event with cameos of the members of the UC tech community 
  4. Conference registration will be waived for the primary presenter in presentation groups

Help spread the word

While participation in the university’s annual technology conference has grown nearly 2.3x in the last decade (from 225 in 2014 to 744 in 2023), participation is still less than 10% of the UC tech community (last year ~7.1% of the UC IT community attended in-person or online).

Please share the above opportunities with your colleagues and encourage them to capitalize on this enormous resources available ONLY at the University of California, with 9,755+ IT employees in 19 locations, and a legacy of over 41 years of high-level IT collaboration and progress. They won’t want to miss this important opportunity.
