The Call For Papers for SIGITE/RIIT 2016 is now available. The 17th Annual Conference on Information Technology Education and the 5th Annual Conference on Research in Information Technology (RIIT) will be hosted by University of Massachusetts Boston and will take place at the Back Bay Hilton. Both conferences are sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group of Information Technology Education (SIGITE).

The conference runs from September 28 to October 1, 2016 and will take place at the Back Bay Hilton in Boston, Massachusetts.

Theme

The theme of both conferences is “Securing Our Future.” Since the time of the Revolutionary War, Boston has been involved in establishing a secure future for this country. While many people still think of the military aspect when it comes to security, as information technologists we know that the digital aspect is a growing threat for the future. Cyber security and information assurance are just two of the many topics that have become incredibly important. How do we develop software applications and hardware infrastructures that are dependable, resilient, and secure? We seek submissions that address ways for information technologists and information technology educators to enable a secure future, directly and through our students.

The Call For Papers for SIGITE/RIIT 2015 is now available. The 16th Annual Conference on Information Technology Education and the 4th Annual Research in IT Conference will be hosted by DePaul University and will take place at the DePaul Loop campus in Chicago, Illinois. Both conferences are sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group for Information Technology Education (SIGITE).

The conference runs from September 30 to October 3 and will take place at the DePaul Loop campus in Chicago, Illinois.

Theme

The theme of both conferences is “Creating the Future”. The Chicago fire of 1871 enabled a rebirth of development in Chicago, producing notable architecture that continues to impact the city into the present day. In a nod to that period of development, a technology-focused incubator called 1871 has been created, and with it has come a focus on reinventing Chicago for the next century. Industry, academic, and political leaders are working to make Chicago a city known for its innovative approaches to business and technology. We seek submissions that look to the future of information technology, helping to define what it is that researchers and students alike will be doing in the decades to come

sigcas-ethics

SIGCAS is the ACM Special Interest Group that addresses the social and ethical consequences of widespread computer usage. SIGCAS’ main goals are to raise awareness about the impact that technology has on society, and to support and advance the efforts of those who are involved in this important work. SIGCAS collaborates with other ACM bodies that are engaged in related work, such as USACM, SIGITE and SIGCSE.

This year, SGICAS will be running a Pre-Symposium Event at this year’s SIGCSE in Kansas City, Missouri, Wednesday, March 4, 2015, from 1:30pm to 4:30pm Central Standard Time. The title for this year’s event is Computing for the Social Good: Educational Practices (CSG-Ed), an umbrella term meant to incorporate any educational activity, from small to large, that endeavors to convey and reinforce computing’s social relevance and potential for positive societal impact. This SIGCAS sponsored symposium is an opportunity for CSG-Ed practitioners to present their projects/practices. The goal is for current and future CSG-Ed practitioners to share best practices, discover new collaborators, review common pitfalls (and how they can be avoided), and discuss how SIGCAS can support the many varied individual and group CSG-Ed efforts.

CSEDU 2015, the International Conference on Computer Supported Education, aims at becoming a yearly meeting place for presenting and discussing new educational environments, best practices and case studies on innovative technology-based learning strategies, institutional policies on computer supported education including open and distance education, using computers. In particular, the Web is currently a preferred medium for distance learning and the learning practice in this context is usually referred to as e-learning. CSEDU 2015 is expected to give an overview of the state of the art as well as upcoming trends, and to promote discussion about the pedagogical potential of new learning and educational technologies in the academic and corporate world.
