October 4th, 2017 Comments off

The ITM Department Office will be closed on and off this week, because nearly everyone who works there will be away at conferences.

Named for computing pioneer and U.S. Navy Admiral Grace Hopper, the celebration is the world’s largest gathering of women technologists, with over 18,000 in attendance this year. As the hosting Logistics Committee for WiCyS, Amber and Angela will be seeing sponsors and potential attendees for the WiCyS Conference to be held at the Hilton Chicago March 23rd and 24th, 2018.

ITM Associate Chair Industry Professor Ray Trygstad, Industry Associate Professor Jeremy Hajek, and Senior Lecturer Dr. Yong Zheng will represent Illinois Tech at the 2017 ACM Special Interest Group in Information Technology Education (SIGITE)/Research in Information Technology (RIIT) Conference in Rochester, NY.
