This conference will be a great place to meet and share things that you are doing in your classroom, your research, and to discuss trends in the industry. Educators, researchers, industry professionals, and graduate students are encouraged to attend. The goal is to provide an opportunity to network, develop teaching and research skills, obtain feedback in presentations, and have fun.
