Missouri S&T will host the fourth annual Research and Technology Development Conference (RTD) Sept. 15-16 in the Havener Center. Thanks to Missouri S&T’s partnership with corporate sponsors, the conference is free to attendees, but registration is required.

In addition to extensive networking opportunities, this year’s conference will feature two days of useful workshops and presentations in three distinct research pillars: computational science, large-data visualization and additive manufacturing.

All three pillars are presented by experts in the field from across the Midwest. Six universities are joining to lead the coordination of workshops, talks, presentations and hands-on demonstrations:

  • University of Oklahoma and University of Nebraska-Lincoln will present sessions on computational science. Engage in discussion with numerous experts and learn how collaboration efforts can guide you to increased research funding.
  • Indiana University and University of Texas will present sessions on large-data visualization. See and use a wide variety of visualization equipment and learn how you can use established visualization systems and tools in your research.
  • University of Louisville and Missouri S&T will present sessions on additive manufacturing. Learn the basics of additive manufacturing and gain insight into how these systems can be used to advance your ideas, even if your campus does not provide local printing services.

Each pillar will contain two days of workshops, hands-on demonstrations and expert talks. RTD’s social, a street party with barbeque, fireworks, music and more, provides an opportunity for networking and good times. Attendees will also include experts from industry to answer your technology questions.

Space is limited and attendance has been capped at 350. Admission is free to attendees, but registration is required and early registration is encouraged to receive hotel discounts.
