Conference at a Glance

 

The Program begins Thursday morning with a series of highly interactive technical and Workshop sessions - each topic area featured was selected for their timeliness and value related to mid year engineering programs. The purpose of the workshops are to describe the main focus areas that most attendees are connected with in their present position. The session will allow people to meet others that work in their area and share common discussion topics. The morning sessions will provide concentrated professional development and the range of topics offers opportunities for everyone from new faculty and staff members to the most experienced educators to expand their skills and knowledge. These sessions will be followed by a technical session and lunch where the Keynote luncheon speaker will summarize the concepts from the morning sessions. In the afternoon the conference will break into two time slots that will continue with a number of invited interactive roundtable discussions that will continue the discussions started in the morning sessions and end with a second technical session. Thursday evening has a dinner activity to promote discussions between conference attendees.

The Thursday and Friday technical program will offer a number of sessions, presented in parallel tracks. The presentations will be a series of best practice descriptions that were submitted based on the call for papers, from the conference attendees. The presentations will include the description of completed work and additional presentations describing preliminary developments of ongoing, cutting-edge projects.
