Symposium Sponsorship

Every May, the HCIL hosts an annual Symposium where faculty and students present the latest research from the lab, run workshops on new technologies and tools, and engage with the broader community.

Industry sponsors enable the lab to run the symposium each year. Please contact hcil-info@cs.umd.edu for more information about sponsoring the annual Symposium. Thank you for your support!
