    Download Call For Participation

    The 14th Annual Conference on Information Technology Education and the 2nd Annual Research in IT Conference will be hosted together by the University of South Florida, and will take place at the Caribe Royale All-Suite Hotel and Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Both conferences are sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Information Technology Education (SIGITE).

    This dual conference provides 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 includes our continuation of the Research in IT conference; our aim for this conference is 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; attendees will be able to attend sessions of both at no additional charge.


    IT Education conference (SIGITE-2013)

    The 2013 SIGITE Conference focuses on making lemonade from the lemon grove that is our collective, resource-constrained education enterprise. We seek high quality, unpublished original works that describe a classroom experience, a teaching technique, a curricular initiative, or an educational research project involving an IT area. With our theme in mind, we would also like to see works that describe innovative approaches to making the most of the resources around you.

    IT Research conference (RIIT-2013)

    We seek high quality, unpublished original works that describe results from recently concluded or ongoing research in an IT-related field. Both theoretical and applied research with impact within the field are welcome.

    Submissions – Submission deadline has expired.


    Submissions will normally be no longer than six double-column pages and will undergo a blind peer reviewing process. Authors will have approximately 25 minutes for their presentations, including questions and answers. Accepted papers must be presented by at least one author and will be published in the conference proceedings.


    Panels allow experts to discuss a current topic of interest in IT education or research. Panel organizers are responsible for selecting appropriate panelists to participate. A panel will normally have at most four panelists. Panel submissions should include a list of panelists, their affiliations, a description of the topic, as well as brief position statements from each panelist. Panel proposals are limited to 2 pages.


    Posters present work currently in progress. Accepted posters of up to two pages will be published in the conference proceedings.

    Other Information


    Will be made available to publishers, software houses, and other interested vendors. Interested parties are invited to contact one of the Sponsorship Co-Chairs [Amber Settle or Terry Steinbach] for information about presenting an exhibit at the conference.


    Students are also encouraged to present papers at either conference. SIGITE will cover the conference registration and provide $200 towards expenses of attending the conference for the first ten accepted student papers. The ACM-W organization will add an additional $500 to this amount for the first ten accepted papers by female students.
