ICCM 2013 - Collaboration
ICCM 2013’s theme is collaboration – how to cooperate and better serve as part of a team, part of a mission, and part of the body of Christ. The answer involves how we design systems, how we treat and respect one another, and how we depend on the Holy Spirit. As techies, we have a reputation for being weak in the soft skills. This is a huge opportunity for God's grace to be sufficient in our weakness. So, while we'll still polish our coding skills and get up speed on the latest technologies, we'll also work on understanding the bigger picture and improving our collaboration skills so we can better serve one another as we serve our God.

Technology 1 & 2 - There are 2 Tech Tracks this year. The Tech Track sessions will help you expand your expertise and implementation of a variety of technology. You will benefit from the field experience of these session leaders.
Mobile - With the onslaught of mobile computing / services and the proliferation of BYOD this track has gone from being a Theme track to being a main track.
Security - Over the years, security has continually become a bigger and bigger issue. As a result, this track is also becoming a main track (at least for this year).
Theme Track - Collaboration: This year's theme track is Collaboration. Collaboration has been a buzz word for several years. This year we are going to take a look at how technology can affect / improve Collaboration when used to build the Kingdom of God. Different speakers will discuss both inter departmental and inter organizational collaboration and what tools they use.
Leadership - This year you will notice that there is no specific Leadership Track. With 5 other tracks, we're going to take Leadership in a slightly different direction and have it as a collaborative track. In other words, different aspects of Leadership will be addressed in each of the tracks in specific sessions.
