CITRENZ 2023 is the premiere computing education conference in New Zealand and spans all disciplines of computing and IT education. While focusing on tertiary education, it also provides links from secondary education and further into the industry.

Careers in digital technology will take centre stage at the conference. A key aim will be further increasing interest in IT and computer education amongst young New Zealanders. In addition, the conference will consider options to increase participation in the industry by Māori and Pacific learners.

The theme for CITRENZ 2023 is: 

Collective Intelligence: Exploring Mahi Kotahitanga in Computing.

In 2023, tertiary education continues to undergo major changes.  Attendees will be discussing vital issues at the conference including how the establishment of Te Pūkenga can enhance the provision of computing education and training.

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 participation from the industry. Each year, the conference is hosted in a different city. This year, we are pleased to welcome you at the Unitec | Te Pūkenga campus in Mount Albert, Auckland.

Call For Papers

The call for papers for 2023 is now live, we have extended the deadline for papers to Monday August 7th to allow and encourage additional participation from the ITP community and industry.
