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 introduction of a new IT Research conference; our aim 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, carrying the joint theme of Working Together: Research & Education for IT, will be co-located and tightly integrated; attendees will be able to attend sessions of both at no additional charge.
