ICT Summit 2013 Input
Hello to all,
As you are probably aware, 2013 is the sesquicentennial of the Morrill Act which paved the way for the creation of Umass Amherst. That means that celebrations of many styles are planned for the 150th of UMass.
It would make sense to tie the ICT Summit into the many events currently being planned.
So...theme? Audience? Activities? At this time I am looking into existing schedules of other events so that we can plan not to coincide with any other major happening on campus. I have met with members of the Development Office who are willing and interested in supporting our endeavors - perhaps with having corporate donors/presenters/etc.
Here are some rough ideas to start this off:
Theme - 150 years of technology: What's next?
Keynote Speaker? One recommendation so far is Christopher Dede.
- Vendor/corporate exhibition
- collaborative work with vendor material/equipment presentations by....
- poster session?
Schedule - one day? two days? two half days?
