Event: UW iSchool Capstone

The UW Information School will be holding our annual Capstone event, showcasing the work of graduating Informatics, MSIM and MLIS students.

Where are the next great ideas in the information field coming from?  This year’s Capstone event may provide some answers. Capstone projects from the iSchool’s Bachelor of Science in Informatics, Master of Science in Information Management and Master of Library & Information Science programs are concrete examples of what it means to design and build novel applications of technology and innovative information tools and services. Capstone students provide solutions to information problems that people and organizations face every day, with projects ranging from mobile device applications to web-based library collection tools to browser security plug-ins.

All are welcome to attend – industry professionals and employers; UW and iSchool alumni, students, faculty and prospective students; and family and friends of the presenting students.  Guests are asked to RSVP for the Capstone Event at http://bit.ly/capstone12.

Date: Thursday, May 31, 2012
Location: UW Tower, Mezzanine Level
Time: 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
