The 2017 UIC IT Professionals Forum will be held on Wednesday, May 31, at Student Center East.
This year’s theme is Under the Sea: Discover a World of Opportunities.
Call for Proposals is now open!
We are seeking presenters to share technology-related developments, which could broadly benefit the campus and its missions. Being a presenter is a great opportunity to showcase yourself as an expert and community resource, while helping your department’s achievements gain visibility. Last year, the conference was well attended by over 250 attendees.
Presentations are 15, 30, 45, 60, or 90 minute sessions that can involve interactive discussion, question/answer, and demonstrations. Presentations that connect information technologies to research, clinical, and administrative/business use at UIC are welcome. Sessions can be lecture style in person, posters set up in the main hall all day, or a workshop in a computer lab.
