"From registration to individual sessions, this conference exceeded my expectations!"

The EDUCAUSE Annual Conference is the premier convening of IT professionals and technology providers across the diverse higher education landscape. The conference creates networking opportunities for colleagues to share ideas regarding strategies, leading change, effective processes, what's working, and sometimes—more importantly—what isn't.

The conference programming is derived from member-driven content organized across overarching IT tracks and hosts one of the largest exhibit halls in the industry. EDUCAUSE 2016 represents the best thinking in higher education IT.

In 2016, the annual conference will convene over 7,000 higher ed IT colleagues to explore what keeps us up at night. Share ideas. Examine trends. Battle assumptions. And swap contact information in an unparalleled representation of peer support and networking.
