MIT CISR Annual Research Forum 2018

During the MIT CISR Annual Research Forum, the MIT CISR team will be sharing findings from the current list of MIT CISR Research Projects. Sponsors and patrons will have the chance to learn and discuss during traditional presentations, and new this year, "Experience" sessions, all presented by MIT CISR researchers and other guests. We are pleased that members of the 2018 MIT CISR Data Board will be able to join our Day 1 attendees; they will have a curated agenda led by Barb Wixom on Day 2.

Please review the draft agenda below and choose one of each set of Experiences during the registration process.
