As abstracts for Social Connections 11 in Chicago this June are pouring in we also get some rather frantic requests from people asking for just a little more time.

Revitalizing conversations in teams with IBM Watson Workspace (formerly known as Project Toscana)
Thu, Oct 27th 2016 11:01a   Maria Enderstam
Taste the word: Toscana. It promises a lot. At least if you have a little bit of crush on Italy as I have. Food and wine in the sunset, overlooking a fabulous view of the countryside or the sea. Something ancient but also invigorating. No wonder I had high hopes on this team collaboration solution from IBM when I first heard about it. Yes, the comparison is silly, but hey. Don’t blame me! I didn’t name it Yesterday IBM launched Project Toscana with its new and equally invigorating name

It is with great sadness in our hearts that the Social Connections team has to announce that there will not be an event this fall. We announced a November event in Southern Europe during the closing session of our Toronto event and the team has worked very hard since then to get this on the rails, but due to many factors we ran out of time. It is very important to us to maintain the quality of our events and even improve each and every one of them. We now are at the point where we cannot guarant
