UIT Brings Back Popular Technology Conference

University Information Technology invites all UH faculty, staff and students to the 2010 Technology Conference on Wednesday, October 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Houston Room of the University Center. The theme of this year’s event, “Power 2 Learn,” spotlights how technology facilitates teaching, learning, and research at the University of Houston

The Tech Conference, formerly the IT Tech Fair, is UH’s largest and longest running technology-related event. Started by UIT in 2001, the Conference has proven highly successful and popular, with hundreds of faculty, staff and students attending each year.

This year’s event features a new format, with a lineup of more than 20 educational and research presentations covering a variety of topics including computer security, mobile computing, Green UH, technology in Biometrics, e-books and academics, social networking, and wind program research at UH, among others.

“Attendees at the conference will see how the campus police department and the university’s information technology department are using some pretty advanced software to help protect the security and privacy of the students, faculty and staff here at the university,” said Dennis Fouty, Associate Vice Chancellor and Chief Information Officer for UIT. “You’ll also meet student teams who are developing some pretty neat mobile applications for iPads and for iPhones, and we’ll also have other presentations that will showcase innovations in teaching, research, and the technology services that will make you and our university a success.”

Apple, HP, and Microsoft will appear among many companies displaying and demonstrating their services and products. Attendees will have the opportunity to talk with various groups around campus about some of the hottest technologies used at UH.

Last, but not least, the 2010 Tech Conference will include free food, giveaways, door prizes and entertainment.
