Due to Covid-19 pandemic, the 21st ACM Annual Conference on Information Technology Education (SIGITE 2020) will be hosted by the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) and will be delivered VIRTUALLY via Zoom on October 7-9, 2020. The conference is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group for Information Technology Education (SIGITE). The conference provides a forum for sharing and developing ideas relating to Information Technology (IT) research, education, applications, IT industry-academia relationships, and our roles as professionals, educators, teachers, and advocates for the effective use of information technology. IT as a professional endeavor is influenced by multiple disciplines – computer science, information systems, management science, cognitive science, psychology, learning, and much more. Consequently, educators at all levels (secondary school through University) have to deal with challenges of emergent areas of study such as IT innovation, Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Human Machine Interaction (HMI), Cybersecurity, Agile Software Engineering, Social Informatics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and much more.
