Sponsored by the Office of Information Technology and its partners, the event will run from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday. It is open to Princeton students, faculty and staff.
There will be more than 50 displays of information technology from OIT, the library, the Office of the Dean of the Faculty, purchasing, facilities, the Undergraduate Student Government and more. A total of 21 half-hour presentations will cover practical things people can do with information technology today.
Participants can enjoy free popcorn, register for door prizes and put their suggestions for making information technology more effective at Princeton into a wishing well.
Upstairs on the 100 level, the digital display wall will showcase new technology and the amazing things that can only be done using its enormous screen. The TV will show the best of Princeton's lectures and special events as well as films made by OIT's Help Desk.
