Technologists, librarians and faculty at AMICAL institutions: this is your conference.
This is where you can work together with peers from other international American universities on the use of information and technology in teaching. This is where your institution’s IT staff can workshop together with your librarians and faculty, regardless of how far apart your local offices are. This is where you can reflect on issues and questions that are shared across our consortium – and are sometimes unique to our fundamentally international-American environments. And in 2016, you can do all this in Rome!
A smaller, more interactive event at AUR
It’s a great pleasure to announce that the next AMICAL Conference will be held May 12–14, 2016, at The American University of Rome.
The AUR campus, located on the fabulous Janiculum Hill, offers a smaller and more intimate venue than we’ve typically had for the AMICAL Conference. We will be taking full advantage of that to create an environment conducive to smaller-group discussions and workshops. And with three days to work with, we will be running a smarter, tighter, and more interactive program this year. With fewer formal presentations, we’ll create more space for posters, technology showcases, workshops, discussions, and project-oriented meetings. Parallel sessions will allow smaller and focused groups to meet at the same time. And as usual, inspiring keynotes will kick off each of the main conference days.
Share the news, and stay tuned!
