Poster session:
The poster session is open to students, postdocs and researchers at UT and other schools, as well as to industry and national labs. To reserve a spot for your poster, please email Angie Missildine at angiem@cm.utexas.edu.

There are a limited number of spaces available for table exhibits at the poster session. Companies must be a current member of the CEC Industrial Affiliates program in order to exhibit.

Join the Industrial Affiliates program, and all attendees from your company enjoy discounted registration for the Workshop.


The workshop will be held in the Robert A Welch building (room 1.308) on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin, near to the many recreational and cultural attractions of the Austin Hill Country. 

The Austin campus is the site of 17 libraries and several world-class museums, and just a short walk or ride away from  central Austin attractions: the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum, the Texas State Capitol, Congress Avenue, and the 6th Street and Warehouse shopping and entertainment districts.

Known as "The Live Music Capital of the World," Austin is a vibrant mix of Texas friendliness and cosmopolitan sophistication, with opportunities for outdoor recreation activities. The weather in Austin during February can be cool, but is generally mild: the average high is 65 F (18 C) and the average low is 44 F (7 C).
