CALICO conference

The annual conferences of CALICO can be anytime from spring break to July, depending upon the available time of the host institution. Our conference typically lasts five days, and consists of hands-on workshops, plenary speakers, regular paper sessions, poster sessions and tech demonstrations, special interest group meetings, our awards ceremony, and social events. We typically meet face to face, but there are options for online participation, too.
