C2M2 5th Annual Fall Conference 2021

Based on the feedback from our advisory team and an abundance of caution we have decided to move this year’s conference to virtual only. This year’s conference will feature Dr. Firas Ibrahim, Director of the USDOT Office of Research Development, and Technology as our keynote speaker, along with an HBCU panel discussion as part of our morning session, and an afternoon of student research presentations and break out workshops with our various funded research partners.
