Blazing The Path Forward: Calit2's 10th-Anniversary Celebration

Title: Blazing The Path Forward: Calit2's 10th-Anniversary Celebration
Event Date: 12/7/2010

Join us Tues., Dec. 7, 2010, as we mark the day 10 years ago when Gov. Gray Davis and UC President Richard Atkinson announced the creation of the California Institutes for Science and Innovation, including the joint award to UCI and UC San Diego for the formation of Calit2. The celebration will include participants from both campuses via a high-speed connection that links the two auditoriums. The mid-morning session will include remarks by the former governer, as well as visionary presentations about the forward path Calit2 will blaze in its second decade. A telematic music performance connecting the two campuses' auditoriums will round out the morning session.

Calit2@UCI will then host a lunch and open house showcasing the newest research activities in the building's labs.

RSVP is required. Register so a place will be reserved for you!
