Come to Calgary in October for an IT Education & Research Conference

 

Come to Calgary on October 11-13, 2012 for SIGITE 2012

The 13th Annual Conference on Information Technology Education will be hosted by Mount Royal University and be held at the Hotel Arts in the city of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The conference is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Information Technology Education (SIGITE). The 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.

Calgary is a vibrant modern city with a population over 1.2 million, making it the fourth largest city in Canada. Host of the 1988 Winter Olympics, Calgary has an exciting cultural scene, ample shopping, and world-renowned restaurants. From peaks to plains, Calgary has also been blessed with abundant natural beauty. Whether it be rugged mountain parks, rolling prairies, boreal forests, or desert Badlands, there is no shortage of natural recreations in the near vicinity of Calgary.

Mount Royal celebrated its 100th anniversary as a post-secondary institute in 2011 and today is home to over 12,000 credit students.  The conference itself will be held in the Hotel Arts, which is a 175-room, full-service boutique hotel in the exciting heart of Calgary. It is steps away from the city’s emerging arts and entertainment district and its vibrant business centre. It offers a relaxing blend of modern luxury and sumptuous cuisine. Enjoy personal restoration through its well-appointed suites, spa-like amenities, and its stunning pool and poolside patio. On the premises are two award-winning restaurants, the Saint Germain, and one of the city’s most chic resto-lounges, the Raw Bar.
