Call for Papers issued for Technology Conference
Tuesday, December 06, 2005

State University of New York Provost Peter D. Salins has issued a call for presentations to the four-day Conference on Instructional Technologies (CIT), which begins May 30 at SUNY Fredonia.  Titled, “Envisioning Tomorrow’s Classroom: Learning without Limits,” the conference is considering proposals that focus on the potential for technology as a tool for teaching and learning. 

SUNY has sponsored the Conference on Instructional Technology (CIT) annually since 1992, bringing together higher education professionals and faculty to share ideas, discuss common problems, and brainstorm solutions.  Held on a SUNY campus every year but open to anyone, CIT is organized by the SUNY Provost’s Office, through the SUNY Training Center, a technology arm of the provost, and the Faculty Access to Computing Technology (FACT), an advisory council.

“We are encouraging a wide range of presentations and perspectives for our program,” said Karen Klose, associate vice president for information technology at SUNY Fredonia, which is the host campus for this, the 15th annual, CIT conference. 

Abstracts are being sought until January 20 from individuals, organizations or groups willing to present papers, posters, panel discussions, vendor exhibitions, workshops, hands-on demonstrations, or problem-and-solution sharing sessions.   Faculty, professionals, administrators and librarians in public and private higher education or K-12 schools are encouraged to submit proposals. 

Nancy Motondo, CIT Director, said the conference is looking for proposals that will address specific uses of technology in education:  such as simulations, assessment, faculty development, open source and collaborative products, technological literacy, and teacher preparation.  “We know that teachers and other professionals in education have much to share and discuss,” she said. 

A committee will select the track sessions after reviewing all proposals, Ms. Motondo said.   The SUNY Training Center has posted a website,, dedicated to the conference, which lists full details and forms for potential registrants as well as presenters.

Situated in picturesque Chautauqua County 45 miles south of Buffalo, SUNY Fredonia is a comprehensive university that was ranked 9th in the North by U.S. News & World Report this fall. Most of the contemporary buildings on campus were designed by I.M. Pei. It was founded in 1826 as the Fredonia Academy and is among the oldest in SUNY.
