October 7-8 2020
We invite you to participate in the 2020 CITRENZ Virtual Conference on October 7 - 8, 2020
The theme for CITRENZ 2020 is: "Leading IT Education in a Changing World".
CITRENZ 2020 is the premiere computing education conference in New Zealand and spans all disciplines of computing and information technology education. While focusing on tertiary education, it also provides links from secondary education and further into the computing industry.
The conference regularly attracts more than 100 attendees from all over New Zealand as well as international delegates. This year we are running the conference on a virtual platform. This is largely due to the ongoing uncertainty this year but it will also allow us all to experience a different format and hopefully engage wider.
This conference is FREE to all educators, professionals, and researchers in the computing and information technology communities.
CITRENZ 2020 is a FREE virtual conference
As with most things in 2020, we are doing things a little differently than we usually would. CITRENZ 2020 will be run via Zoom, so you can enjoy CITRENZ 2020 where ever you are. Registrations are essential to ensure you are sent details of how to connect on the day.
