(February 2018 Update)

The March 10th ESRC 50th Anniversary Celebration’s afternoon and evening activities will be conducted in the Maverick Activities Center (MAC) located on the UTA campus (maps and parking details provided at the UTA parking link below).  We have reserved an area on the 2nd floor of the MAC for these activities. The dress for all activities is business casual.

The registration table for the ESRC50 event will be located on the 2nd floor of the MAC and will be open from 2:00 to 9:00 PM.  When you enter the MAC check-in at the building access control desk (located at the first floor front entry on Nedderman Drive) for directions.

The afternoon activities will be hosted by Dr. Shoults.  Please check-in at the event registration desk beginning at 2:00 PM.  The afternoon session program will begin at 2:30 with opening remarks. The afternoon session will conclude by 5:00 PM (all times are local). This part of the celebration is structured as an interactive session.  A series of roughly 15 minute sessions covering the history of the ESRC from its beginning in 1968 and moving forward decade by decade through the 60 – 70’s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s to the current decade’s (2010s) activities. Drs. Shoults and Lee will, prior to the session, ask specific attendees to serve as facilitators for each decade.  Attendees are asked to share their experiences at the ESRC along with their thoughts regarding the impact of the experience in their professional careers. During the Decade Group Presentations spoken remarks, brief formal presentations including photos and other media materials as selected by the attendees, will all be welcome. A Computer and video projector will be available on site. Please bring your presentation or information to share on an USB drive.  Contact Dr. Shoults with your questions or suggestions about the structure for the afternoon’s activities.

The Celebration’s evening activities will begin at 6:00 PM, in the MAC with a complementary sit-down dinner followed by a formal program (beginning around 7:00).  The evening’s activities will adjourn by 9:00 PM.  Please use the link below to indicate your Dinner Entrée preferences.  The program will include remarks by our guest of honor, Mo Sheng Chen and presentations/remarks by Dr. Lee and other distinguished guests.
