Comments Off on SIGITE 2019 Conference Announcement

The University of Washington Tacoma is the host for the 20th Annual Conference for the Special Interest Group for IT Educators. The campus is located in downtown Tacoma Washington and has revitalized the downtown area. The campus is within walking distance of the Conference site and the conference hotels. The campus has grown to 5500 students since its founding in 1990. The Information Technology Program is the 37th ABET accredited program in the United States and has 210 students. Graduates of the program work for tech giants Microsoft, Amazon, T Mobile, Expedia, Infoblox, Boeing and many other companies throughout the South Sound.

The conference runs from October 2 – 5, 2019 and will take place at the Greater Tacoma Convention Center, Tacoma, Washington.

Theme

The theme for SIGITE 2019 is “Transforming IT Education.” IT Is a combination of Programming, Human Computer Interaction, Networking, Databases, and Web Technologies with an overarching security component. This unique blend of subjects is constantly changing, which makes for a unique challenge for IT educators to produce graduates ready for today’s workforce. 70% of our students come from our local community colleges, thus there will be a community college component to SIGITE 2019. Community colleges play a vital role in IT Education and improved interaction is needed.

Comments Off on SIGITE/RIIT 2017 CFP Now Available

The Call For Papers for SIGITE/RIIT 2017 is now available. The 18th Annual Conference on Information Technology Education and the 6th Annual Conference on Research in Information Technology (RIIT) will be hosted by Rochester Institute of Technology and will take place at the Hyatt Regency Rochester Hotel. Both conferences are sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group of Information Technology Education (SIGITE).

The conference runs from October 4 – 7, 2017 and will take place at the Hyatt Regency Rochester Hotel, New York.

Theme

The theme of both conferences is “Enabling the Future.” From its establishment in the early 1800s, Rochester, NY has long been a city that leveraged innovation. The Erie Canal allowed Rochester millers to ship their flour across the state to Albany (earning it the nickname, “Flour City”), flexible photographic film allowed George Eastman to grow his Kodak empire, and today photonics are creating new possibilities. The canal, the flexible film, and photonics are all enablers, but in the Internet of Things, ubiquitous computing, and smart communities, information technology is the enabler. The networking, the massive data stores, and the user experience all depend on information technology. The aim of the conferences is to showcase how information technology enables the future.

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.

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.

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
