ITP 2019 National Conference

Come and present at the broadest innovation-focused conference of 2019

The Call for Papers for ITP 2019 is now closed

ITP-logoIT Professionals New Zealand (ITP) is proud to announce the future-focused national conference celebrating IT-led innovation in New Zealand.

This year we are excited to be part of an ITX spin-off conference called ITx Rutherford - capturing the same innovation and culture of ITx but in a more intimate "retreat-style" setting in Nelson.

ITx is where New Zealand's digital technology sector comes together. Delegates will have the opportunity to participate in any of the conferences as well as gaining exposure to shared keynotes and panel sessions.

Each conference is responsible for setting their own programme, so we invite software and IT professionals and other interested parties to share abstracts/concepts for consideration for the ITP 2019 Conference.

About ITP 2019

The ITP 2019 national conference will bring together leading thinkers from the profession, the top ICT companies, the user community, academia, plus research and government institutions to explore innovating our way to the future. This is a must attend event for those wanting to engage a broad range of ICT stakeholders.

NOTE: This is the Call for Papers for the ITP Conference, one of two component conferences of ITx. Click here for more information about ITx 2019.

Call for Presentations

The programme committee is now seeking papers and presentations from both industry and academia with high-calibre, attention-grabbing content.  The conference theme is broad (Innovation, Technology, Education) with a strong focus on the innovative power of ICT.

We invite individuals and organisations to submit papers and presentations on loosely theme-related practice and research, from ICT practitioners, researchers and decision makers from industry, government/public sector and academia. Note that this year ITP is not seeking formal peer-reviewed academic papers - we encourage those seeking academic publication to submit through the concurrent CITRENZ conference. However we welcome general papers from academics of course.

The papers/presentations are being organised around the following major themes.  Each submission should loosely correspond to one of the following tracks:

  1. Current and future tech trends
  2. Innovation and Research
  3. Technology and Education
  4. Professional practice*
  5. Technical
  6. General interest (i.e. everything else of interest to IT professionals)

* The professional practice theme relates to anything to do with the profession and developing professionals. This might include presentations related to a wide range of topics that engage IT professionals, whether that be in practice (such a governance, project management, development, etc) or in developing the profession as a whole.

We are seeking practitioner and general submissions, from professional industry and public sector software and IT practitioners, and academics wishing to present without submitting a formal paper. An abstract (approx 200-250 words) can be submitted now, along with a speaker profile. Accepted presentations will be edited by a professional copywriter before publication.

You can submit as many paper/presentation ideas as you wish.
