We’re excited to share the NULab’s spring 2022 calendar of events. We have some very exciting talks, panels, workshops, and other events planned for the semester. You can find additional details and registration information for these events here.

We’ll share any updates or newly-added events on the NULab events page; we’ll also circulate these through the NUDIGITAL list. All spring NULab events will be virtual. These events are free and open to the public, but registration is required. Registration links are coming soon for some events, so please save these dates and check the events page for updates. Please contact with any questions.
