The 2022 Michigan IT Symposium will be held November 16 & 17. The planning committee is accepting proposals for breakout and poster sessions through August 12. Registration will open this fall.

Helping Shape the Future of Learning, Research, & Care

This year’s theme is "Helping Shape the Future of Learning, Research, & Care.” Technology professionals across the Michigan IT community affect change — designing, evolving, and adapting technology to create innovative solutions and opportunities for new discoveries. Posters and presentations at the 2022 Michigan IT Symposium will showcase these accomplishments from the past year and celebrate the people behind them.

Contemplate this year’s theme as you consider submitting poster or presentation proposals. Review the problems you and your team have solved and the accomplishments you have made. What innovations and lessons could be shared for the good of the entire community? How have collaborations with students, faculty, or other colleagues resulted in success? What are the positive impacts technology has had on teaching, research, or precision health and patient care? We encourage you to submit a proposal.

2022 Submission Categories

Proposals should be submitted within the standard subject areas of research, teaching & learning, precision health & patient care, knowledge, administration, or Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and fit into one of the following categories.
