LabTech 2018

Seventh Annual

October 25, 2018

What is LabTech?

LabTech is a free, annual event created by and for Lab staff (and friends from UCB, SLAC, Stanford, etc.) that focuses on computing and technology for science and operations. Modeled after UC San Diego's popular Sharecase event, LabTech features technical tutorials, discussion sessions, networking opportunities, demonstrations, and more.

LabTech is a multi-track conference aimed at scientists, technologists, and support staff. Whether you're interested in the latest tools for data management for scientists or the newest features in Berkeley Lab's business systems, LabTech will have something for everyone on campus.

This is our seventh LabTech event, and each year we continue to refine and grow our flagship outreach and community event for computing at the Laboratory.
