Spring Research Showcase Focuses on Data Analytics
Data analytics and data science are an important part of the research mix at the University of Arkansas. Topics such as cybersecurity, bio informatics, visual analytics, and virtual and augmented reality are in the news almost daily, and they're in our research labs as well.
Deadline to register for the research showcase is April 3.
The next Research Showcase, 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. April 10 at the Arkansas Union, will feature poster presentations by faculty and graduate students from the eight existing centers that specialize in data analytics and data science. The centers are the Arkansas Security Research and Education Institute; the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies; the Center for Information Security and Reliability; the Cybersecurity Center for Secure, Evolvable Energy Delivery Systems; the Information Research Technology Institute; the Institute for Advanced Data Analytics; the Center for Innovation in Healthcare Logistics; and the Tesseract Center for Immersive Technology.
The goal of the showcase is to encourage discussion and collaboration among researchers, and get the word out about the discoveries and technologies coming from these centers.
If you're interested in attending, please RSVP to Jennifer Atchley White, firstname.lastname@example.org.
