NYSCIO Overview

NYSCIO 2014
The Lodge at Welch Allyn
Skaneateles Falls, New York
July 9th - 11th, 2014

Welcome to the 2014 New York State CIO Conference.

The themes of this conference over the past few years have reflected the rapid pace of change and new forcing functions in higher education, with information technology both the enabler for some of these changes and a critical tool for responding to external forces. Reflecting your seminal role, this year's theme is The Evolving Role of the CIO. We need collectively to explore the changes that are upon us and how our roles must change to help our institutions not just adapt, but thrive.

As has been the case in all these conferences, we want this meeting to provide an opportunity for reflective dialogue on working together, the chance to initiate, continue and deepen conversations. This year, we were blessed with a large program committee from a wide variety of institutions, and their broad wisdom has brought you this rich program. We look forward to your active participation and contribution to our collective understanding.

Welcome to beautiful Skaneateles.
