    Join us for a panel discussion March 29th in Arts 3-26 at noon (bring your lunch) on innovative ways UAlberta researchers are trying to reduce their carbon footprints while still advancing their academic careers. In the spirit of e-conferencing, the discussion will be broadcast live on the KIAS youtube channel so if you can't make it to the Arts Senate chambers for the event please tune in online. 

    We'll also be releasing our new 'Moving Ideas without Moving People' e-conferencing toolkit at the event for helping you learn more about planning an e-conferencing event.
