Colorado State University is hosting the Information Science and Technology Research Colloquium on April 13-14 at the University Park Holiday Inn in Fort Collins. The two-day seminar, featuring presentations, panel discussions and posters by Colorado State leaders in the field, will focus on key areas of promoting, facilitating and enhancing research, education and outreach activities through effective use of information science and technology.
The event is open to the public but is tailored to researchers and others involved with information science and technology. The colloquium offers the opportunity for Colorado State faculty and students engaged in all areas of information science and technology-oriented research to inform the university and larger community about their work, learn about activities of their colleagues from across campus and explore potential collaborations.
The Information Science and Technology Colloquium is sponsored by the university’s Office of the Vice President for Research and Information Technology and the Colorado State Information Science and Technology Center, or ISTeC.
"The goal of the Information and Science Technology Colloquium is to provide both information and foster collaboration among individuals and groups in diverse disciplines across campus and throughout the community," said Hank Gardner, interim vice president for research at Colorado State.
The program will cover various topics including end-to-end information science and technology systems, sensing for information science and technology systems with a focus on extreme ultra-violet science and technology, cross-cutting issues for information science and technology affecting everyday life, information processing and knowledge extraction. Panel discussions will highlight information science and technology education and strategic technological initiatives for Colorado State.
Presentations also include more than 100 posters submitted by students and faculty that cover a large range of information science and technology topics.
