Missouri S&T Holds RTD Conference in September

August 20, 2018

Update about student travel funds at the end.

September 15-16: Data Carpentry Workshop

September 17-18: Research and Technology Development conference

Back by popular demand, Missouri S&T will again be holding their Research and Technology Development conference (RTD). The three pillars for 2018 are:

Remote Sensing |  Visualization  |  High Performance Computing

The Research and Technology Development conference is an all-encompassing event for researchers, students, and academics who are involved with research and technology.

It’s about networking, learning about technologies, developing new skills, and sharing ideas with people who may, or may not, have the same interests as you.

This year’s RTD event will be even bigger than the last, with more skill-building workshops, more talented researchers and students coming together, and more of what makes technology and the research community great.

Highlights from this year’s show are:
