ECIC #27 2023
Embracing the Digital Age: The Intersection of Theology and Technology in Today's Church
As our society becomes increasingly digital, it is crucial for the church to engage with technology in a thoughtful and relevant way. The ECIC 2023 conference invites participants to explore how public theology can inform and contribute to digital discourse, how churches can establish a reliable and impactful presence on digital platforms, and how to navigate the challenges of artificial intelligence. Topics of discussion will include ensuring the accuracy and accessibility of church content in the digital age, as well as strategies for leveraging technology to deepen faith and connect with congregants. Join us as we explore the intersection of theology and technology in today's rapidly evolving world.

"Tell Your Story" - Workshop
Since ECIC is a network and is highly dependent on its members activity during the conference there are two important parts of the conference that any conference member is welcome to take an active part in.
A big part of any ECIC conference is the "Tell Your Story" - sessions. Here the network-aspect of ECIC really shines where we show each other how we work, how we solved something, a product we've made, or what ever we think can be useful or interesting to the other participants.
If you want to share something with us, please check that box in the registration form and we will come back to you later with more information on the format and also to ask more about your session (you don't need to be fully sure about what to talk just yet, we will make contact with you about it a few weeks before the conference).

Payment, if you have registrered and not payed yet, you can do so here.
I have already paid for 2020 years conference
If you are among those who paid for 2020 years conference and haven't asked for a refund, you have been contacted by Titti Kallio by the end of April about the refund or if you wished the money to go into this years conference fee.

What's included in the fee
When you pay for the ECIC-conference your stay at the hotel is included, and so is most of the meals during the conference.
