Fidel Center -- March 1, 2024 

NMT Logo


The New Mexico Tech Office of Research will be hosting the second university-wide Research Colloquium on Friday, March 1, 2024

Our special guests for the Research Colloquium will be from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL). This Research Colloquium is an opportunity to present current research and hear about current research from NMT and laboratory researchers. The main goal of the event is to foster transdisciplinary research and to connect researchers to each other with the purpose of increasing your research connections and opportunities.

The Research Colloquium will take place at the Fidel Center and will include a luncheon. Events include talks from NMT and laboratory researchers, networking sessions, and a luncheon with a keynote from LANL, SNL and NMT’s Distinguished Researcher.

Presentations: Research presentations are intended to cover all areas of interest to NMT faculty. Researchers wishing to present at the Research Colloquium need to submit an abstract of their talk at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6XTC8SZ. Deadline for submission is Friday, TBD.

Posters: Research posters are intended to cover all areas of interest to NMT faculty. Researchers wishing to display a poster at the Research Colloquium will need to submit an abstract of their poster at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2X2LZ8J. Deadline for submission is Friday, TBD.

Booths: NMT Departments and Centers wishing to display a booth of their research capacities and meet with faculty and laboratory staff to discuss possible collaborative research opportunities must register for a booth at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6NGHLBB. Deadline for submission is Friday, TBD.

This event is hosted and sponsored by the NMT Office of Research, but advanced registration is required. The entire NMT research community is encouraged to attend including faculty, staff and students.  You can register for this event at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2F3ZTWF. Deadline for registration is Monday TBD. Please encourage your colleagues and students to attend.
