Event description

Description

UQ’s first Department of Computer Science was established in 1969 and has since seen progressive research and teaching as well as become a hub for future investment and study.

To celebrate this 50 year milestone, we are delighted to host Mark Pesce, a leading futurist, author, entrepreneur and innovator, as our keynote speaker.

Mark has been at the forefront of the digital revolution for thirty-five years. From virtual reality to education, finance, manufacturing, transportation and communication, Mark gives individuals and organisations the tools they need to think effectively about the future, its opportunities, and its disruptions.

Join us as we hear from Mark and his insights on where computer science is headed and stay for networking over canapes and drinks.

Please register your attendance by Thursday 14 February 2019.

We hope you to see you there!
