EPET at SITE 2015

EPETatSITE15

The annual SITE conference is an fixture in my life in the spring semester. This year is no exception. What is interesting is the manner in which the EPET program at MSU has been increasing its presence at the conference. Above is a screen-shot of my calendar of from Tuesday March 3 to Friday March 6, listing ALL the presentations that students, faculty, graduates of MSU are involved in. Below that is a list of all the presentations. Thanks to Spencer Greenhalgh for taking time to create this list. He has also assembled all of these (plus basic info like keynotes, lunches, etc.) into a Google Calendar, which you can add to your own iCal / Google Calendar/ other calendar apps.” Which is exactly what I did. Enjoy.

Also, if we missed anybody let us know and I will add to the list right away.
