The 16th Annual Conference on Information Technology Education and the 4th Annual Conference on Research in Information Technology (RIIT) was hosted by DePaul University and took place at the DePaul Loop campus September 30 – October 3, 2015. Both conferences were sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group of Information Technology Education (SIGITE).
Online registration is closed. Anyone wishing to attend the conferences must register onsite.
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.
