Experts Slated for Cyber Security Symposium

Businesses, organizations and individuals are dependent upon computers and computer networks to perform critical work in an ever-increasing technology-driven economy. As this dependency grows, threats from mischievous pranksters, criminals who steal valuable and sensitive information and nations engaged in espionage continue to increase.

UNC Charlotte is a leader in education and research that addresses the many vulnerabilities in cyberspace. The annual Cyber Security Symposium is an opportunity for attendees to become more aware about important topics and possible solutions in the field. This year’s event is scheduled from 8:15 AM to 5:00 PM, Wednesday, Oct. 5, at UNC Charlotte. Early registration discounts are available online.

For 17 years, this annual symposium, co-hosted by the College of Computing and Informatics and Charlotte Research Institute at UNC Charlotte, has brought national leaders to share their knowledge and leadership. Bank of America is the title sponsor of the 2016 symposium.

'Inquiry to Practice' Opening Reception Set for Aug. 4

The Projective Eye Gallery at UNC Charlotte Center City will present Inquiry to Practice: Answering the Questions Aug. 4 through Sept. 3. An opening reception will be held Aug. 4 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM.

Under the leadership of Dr. Delane Ingalls Vanada, assistant professor of art education, a group of K-12 art teachers from Charlotte-area schools have come together to ask questions about the state of education today and to approach and stimulate their own creative work as living inquiry. These educators have made the conscious choice to remain practicing artists. With Inquiry to Practice: Answering the Questions, the College of Arts + Architecture / Projective Eye Gallery provides a haven for them to express their own creativity, outside of the borders of the classroom.
