Agenda Day 2

Day 2 will coincide with the first day of the ECEDHA conference, and will give the attendees access to all conference sessions. The ECEDHA program for that date is structured to provide to the iREDEFINE attendees an immersive experience on issues of interest to ECE faculty.

Day 2 will also feature a poster session, in which the iREDEFINE attendees will present their work. The poster session will feed into a reception for Workshop attendees, ECE chairs and industry affiliates, which will offer networking opportunities. 

Please note that students must attend until 3:00pm Saturday. Staying for the reception dinner is optional.
