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 LBL business systems, LabTech will have something for everyone on campus on Wednesday, October 11, 2017.

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

I can't come for the entire day (sad)

Don't worry - you can come and go as you please - but you still need to register.

I have a particular topic that I'd like to hear (smile)

Excellent - we want to hear from you! There is a section on the registration  form to provide us with your topic(s) of interest.

What Happened Last Year?

Over 600 Berkeley Lab staff and affiliates came out for our fifth LabTech event. Scientists, staff, and visitors all gave the event some of the highest ratings for any event we've ever put on. This year, we're hoping to put together an even more informative and rewarding event.




Transportation: How am I getting to LabTech?
