Call For Papers

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 October 4 – 7, 2017. Both conferences are sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group of Information Technology Education (SIGITE).The dual conferences provide a forum for sharing and developing ideas relating to information technology research, education, applications, IT-industry-academia relationships, and our roles as professionals, educators, and advocates for the effective use of information technology. This year is the sixth for the Research in IT conference, which aims to provide a venue for showcasing research in information technology that may or may not have a connection with teaching IT. These two conferences will be co-located and tightly integrated so that participants can attend the sessions of both at no additional charge.

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.

Panel organizers are responsible for selecting appropriate panelists to participate. A panel will normally have at most four panelists including the organizer.

Panel

Lightning talks present work currently in progress and for which authors are actively seeking feedback or short curricular, pedagogical, or research techniques of interest to the SIGITE/RIIT communities. Accepted lightning talks will be presented in a session where each author is given 10 minutes to present the work and obtain feedback. A one-page summary of the accepted lightning talks will be published in the conference proceedings.

Posters
