Agenda

We will also present a number of exciting panels discussing computer science topics with FIU faculty, a formal dinner in the GC ballroom, plenty of networking opportunities, and an open house to engage the community with the work we are doing in our labs. We think it will be a spectacular tech event for our campus and South Florida. We expect over two hundred attendees with a good portion being represented by our alumni.
