  We invite you to the 1st ACM Symposium on Computer-Human Interaction 
for Management of Information Technology (CHIMIT), in cooperation with 
USENIX.  The technical program spans a wide range of topics related to 
the challenges of managing today's complex IT ecosystems, from 
guidelines for tools to knowledge sharing and communication, to 
usability and security.  Our goal is to bring together researchers, 
practitioners, and designers from a range of fields to discuss and 
advance new approaches to system design and management. 

In addition to paper presentations (listed below) there will be a poster 
session, a plenary speech by Stephen R. Barley of Stanford University on 
IT in the Wild, a panel on automation in management, and a dinner reception.

CHIMIT takes place over a day and a half on March 30-31, 2007 at the 
Marriott Cambridge Hotel in Boston MA, USA.  Registration is now open on 
our website at
