The agenda for this year's annual Industrial Affiliates meeting will be similar to last year's format. Research presentations, posters and demos will occur on the first day, while the second day will be primarily devoted to the recruiting and interviewing of our graduate and undergraduate students.
Tuesday, February 26 - Research Overviews, Talks, Demonstrations, and Posters
The first day will begin with a short state-of-the-department overview that will include initiatives and research begun over the past year. The bulk of the day will consist research talks (in parallel tracks), as well as poster presentations and demonstrations, and will end with a reception and dinner. The day will allow our affiliates to meet many of our graduate students at the talks and demonstration/poster sessions (accompanied by our traditional espresso cart).
