Speakers will include smart living hires, smart living researchers with seed funding and individuals wanting to pitch their ideas for the Smart Living signature area. If you are interested in pitching an idea, you will have two minutes to share who you are, your research focus or need, and your resources or resource availability.

For example, slide No. 1 can include who you are (research ideas, proposals or projects related to smart living, expertise areas, current funding or resources available). Slide No. 2 can detail what you need to move forward (collaborators with specific skills, knowledge or perspective; technology, lab or research access).

If you would like to be a presenter, please contact Dr. Nancy Stone, professor of psychological science, at and let her know when you can present. If you can present Monday, Feb. 4, please let Stone know by Wednesday, Jan. 30. We hope to have two or three pitches along with other speakers.

To further support the development of networks and proposals, individuals can apply for some seed money through the Center for Smart Living. Research teams must be interdisciplinary in smart living. Multiple teams could target an assortment of funding agencies.

Following the presentations will be time to socialize and further discuss ways to build smart living research teams. Snacks will be provided.
