Humans enjoy five senses to experience the world. Yet when it comes to research, most people rely solely on the sense of sight to get them through. Bt how does sound help you perceive data? Find out at Missouri S&T’s Research & Technology Development Conference 2016 by attending Dr. Scot Gresham-Lancaster’s “Listen to your Data” workshop at 2:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 12.

Gresham-Lancaster explores not just seeing research data but also listening to it. His research focuses on perceiving data through sound, a process called sonification. He is an early pioneer of networked computer music and has worked on developing audio for several games and interactive products. Attendees of this workshop will be given opportunities to experiment in creating their own sonifications. If interested, bring in your own CSV files of data to be sonified.

Space is limited, so register for RTD 2016 today. To register and see the full schedule of events, visit Attendees will be eligible to attend a free social with alive band and fireworks. Food and drinks will be provided. For more information, email
