CITRENZ 2022 - Christchurch NZ


The call for paper submissions has been extended!

In 2022, tertiary education continues to undergo major changes, including the merger of ITPs into Te Pūkenga. The effects of the pandemic on education delivery are also here to stay. The conference covers, not only regular technology and education papers, workshops and panels, but also offers sessions to address the ongoing challenges and opportunities our education providers face. This is further enhanced with keynote speakers, social networking sessions, and participants from the industry. Each year, the conference is hosted in a different city. This year, we are pleased to welcome you at the Ara Institute of Canterbury main campus in Christchurch.

The 2022 CITRENZ Face-to-face Conference will be held on October 4 – 6, 2022 in Christchurch. This will be followed by a day of special CITRENZ and Te Pūkenga related workshops on October 7th. Authors are invited to submit abstracts, full papers, posters, panels and workshops for presentation and publication.

The theme for CITRENZ 2022 is: Unifying Educational Delivery and Collaborating Towards Technical Excellence. The proceedings will be indexed by Google Scholar. This is an opportunity for adding to your PBRF portfolios.

CITRENZ 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 conference is open to all educators, professionals, and researchers in the wider computing and information technology community.

Along with experienced researchers and educators, CITRENZ 2022 also welcomes PhD and Master's students, by offering *free registration* to those who are about to complete their advanced degrees. This is a great opportunity to make a presentation at a national conference and get your work indexed. Please submit your abstract/proposal or paper as soon as possible, and mention your degree and university/institute in the abstract/proposal. We will quickly review and confirm whether you qualify for the free registration.
