* Directions and parking instructions will be distributed closer to the event.

Please forward to others who might be interested in attending our symposium.

Join us for this free opportunity to hear what national experts have to say about the current trends and challenges affecting science facility planning & design.

This year's presentation topics will focus on:

  • Design strategies, industry trends and performance potential for high performance science facilities
  • Visualization, connectivity & collaboration in science and technology facilities
  • Technologies to achieve net zero or near net zero in laboratories regardless of the climate

We are offering two options for facility tours this year: School of Engineering’s LEEP2 & M2SEC buildings or the School of Pharmacy building on the West Campus. For more information, see the “Tour” tab. We will also share results from the LEEP2 post occupancy evaluation we conducted this spring.

There is no cost to attend this symposium. Lunch and dinner will be provided by Treanor, and continuing education credits will be available for each session.

Hope to see you there!
