The EIT Team, together with the ITP Forum of the Education and Research Group, welcome you to CITRENZ 2017, the 30th Annual CITRENZ conference. We look forward to seeing you in October!



CITRENZ 2017 is the premiere computing education conference in New Zealand and spans all disciplines of computing and information technology education. While focusing on tertiary education, it also provides links from secondary education and further into the computing industry. The conference regularly attracts over 100 attendees from all over New Zealand as well as international delegates.

This conference is open to all educators and researchers in the computing and information technology and computing and information science communities.

This is the 30th Annual CITRENZ Conference. The CITRENZ Conference is operated by the ITP Forum of the Education and Research Group of IT Professionals New Zealand, formerly CITRENZ and NACCQ before that.


Agile and Industry-Ready IT Education

This year's theme is Agile and Industry-Ready IT Education. The Call For Papers is currently open - full details here.



CITRENZ 2017 will be held at the East Pier Hotel and Venue Centre on Napier's historic waterfront. East Pier on the waterfront in Napier's historic port area of Ahuriri is the area's oldest beachfront dining venue and still boasts without doubt the best location with the best views in town.
