IT Staff Convention 2019

| 9:00am to 6:00pm Jon M. Huntsman Hall, Forum level

The 14th annual IT Staff Convention will be held on Tuesday, June 4, 2019, in Jon M. Huntsman Hall, here on campus! The annual IT Staff Convention provides a phenomenal opportunity for networking, learning from your IT peers at Penn, seeing what other IT groups at Penn are working on, and creating connections that last far beyond the convention itself. We have content for everyone involved with IT - local support providers, sysadmins, developers, managers, information security gurus, social media mavens, data analysts, new hires, and seasoned staff.

This spring's convention will once again feature our traditional format with sessions covering the breadth of things going on in IT at Penn, covering topics that include:

Information Security
Emerging Technologies
Classroom & Learning Technologies
Enterprise Systems and Projects Overviews
Novel Uses of Technology on Campus
Inclusion in the Workplace
etc.
We'll have a mix of open-ended, moderated discussion sessions, panel discussions, and more formal presentations (with Q&A), as well as one or two additional, surprise events. The convention will run for most of the day: lunch will be served and a reception will wrap up the day's activities.  Coffee, tea, soda, and water will be available throughout the day.
