This year’s theme is “SECURITY & INNOVATION”
This year, we are pleased to welcome Dr. Brad Wheeler, Vice-President of IT and CIO, Indiana University, as the Keynote Speaker. Over the past decade, Wheeler has co-founded and led over $70M of pooled university investments in open source software communities for Sakai and Kuali; co-founded the HathiTrust and Digital Preservation Network; and led IU’s new model for digital textbooks. In 2012 he was named one of The Chronicle of Higher Education's "12 Tech Innovators Who Are Transforming Campuses" and one of Government Technology's "Top 25 Doers, Dreamers, and Drivers in Public Sector Innovation".
Brad Wheelers keynote address will focus on the shift of higher education to more of a private than a public good and the rapidly increasing digitization of education and research, which favors scale.
To complement the Keynote Speaker’s address, we invite all attendees and presenters to think about the important connection between security and rapid innovation required to keep up with the growing technology trends in higher education.
