Annual iSchool Research Fair Showcases Faculty and Student Work

How do communication technologies change our lives? How can America help its veterans to transition into technology work? How can touchscreen technology be improved for people with motor impairments?

Faculty and students in the UW Information School's 2012 Research Fair pose these questions and dozens more as they showcase their scholarship and creative work to the campus community and the public. About 45 posters and interactive demonstrations will be presented at the free event, to be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture.

The goal for the event is to demonstrate how the iSchool's sustained engagements with other academics and professional partners in industry, service, and government are making critical contributions to knowledge and practice, enabling more people to access and use information with confidence.
