For faculty, staff, and departments, schools, and programs in general, the following items are being solicited:

  • Conference presentations with current Virginia Tech students
  • Keynote or plenary presentations only, not invited speakers in general
  • Awards, grants, honors, and other accomplishments of note.*

For current students:

  • Conference presentations (papers or posters) and publications, either accepted or published

*“Of note” is left to the discretion of the submitter and of the News2Note editorial staff.
