The JPL Office of the Chief Scientist and Chief Technologist extend a special invitation to the Campus family to attend the 2016 Research Poster Conference on November 08, 2016. There will be over 200 posters on display at the conference. The conference supports the Laboratory’s Independent Research and Technology Development (IR&TD) Program, consisting of both the Research and Technology Development (R&TD) Program and the Strategic University Research Partnerships (SURP) Program. This is your opportunity to meet with colleagues, in many disciplines, within science and technology, conducting research strategically important to JPL/Caltech and NASA.
The posters will be available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You will also be able to chat with the individual science and technology researchers, who will be present at their posters, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is an excellent opportunity to see first-hand the latest results from the programs, and to learn more about the investment opportunities available at JPL.
All students, postdocs, researchers and faculty are encouraged to attend.
Transportation/Parking: The JPL/Campus shuttle is available to provide transportation to and from JPL on a specific schedule (this schedule with pick up locations and hours of service will be emailed to you on November 7). In addition, we will provide JPL Parking Permits to the first 20 people indicating in the RSVP that they will travel by car.
Check-In: JPL will provide event badges to visitors as they arrive. Visitors should bring their IDs (driver’s license if they’re US or LPR; valid passport if they’re foreign national).
Food: Light refreshments are provided, and visitors are welcome to purchase sandwiches and other food items from the Rover coffee bar.
This event is co-sponsored by the Caltech Division of Engineering and Applied Science, the Caltech Center for Diversity Women Mentoring Women Program and the W. M. Keck Institute for Space Studies.
