Two minutes, two slides, 13 faculty—a research showcase at (not quite) warp speed.
The Michigan Tech Research Forum is a new University presentation series showcasing the work of Michigan Tech faculty, postdocs, and researchers.
Join us from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Thurs. Dec. 1 in MUB Ballroom B for the third Michigan Tech Research Forum of the semester and the second TechTalks session.
Thirteen researchers from across campus will present rapid-paced samplings of their work, both published and unpublished. Via warp speed talks, attendees get a quick taste of the cutting edge research and can follow up with one-on-one discussions that lead to collaborative ventures and strengthen our community.
Complimentary snacks and drinks will be provided.
Special note: On-site, low-cost childcare at the MUB is available during the TechTalks. Childcare will be available on-site for the Dec. 1 TechTalks. Pre-registration is required by Nov. 29 to ensure adequate caregivers. Complete the the registration form.
