NMT Research Colloquium

08:00 AM - 03:00 PM
Fidel Center
1 Olive Lane, Socorro, NM

The New Mexico Tech Office of Research will be hosting the first university-wide Research Colloquium on October 16, 2019. Our special guests for the Research Colloquium will be from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). As many of you know, President S.G. Wells signed a Institutional Agreement between LANL and NMT last October. This Research Colloquium is an opportunity to present current research and hear about current research from NMT researchers and LANL researchers. A main goal of the event is to foster transdisciplinary research and to connect researchers, both NMT and LANL, to each other with the purpose of increasing your research connections and opportunities.

The Research Colloquium will take place at the Joseph A. Fidel Student Center and will include a luncheon. Events that day include talks from NMT and LANL researchers, networking sessions, and a luncheon with a keynote from LANL and NMT's 2019 Distinguished Researcher, Professor Nikolai Kalugin.

There are limited spaces if departments or research centers wish to have a booth during the event. This is a great opportunity to make connections within NMT and with LANL researchers. You can apply for a booth space (no cost) by emailing Erica Rivera Álvarez at erica.riveraalvarez@nmt.edu.

This event is hosted and sponsored by the Office of Research, but advanced registration is required. The NMT research community is encouraged to attend, faculty, staff and students.
