2014 PARTNERS Conference


At the 2014 PARTNERS conference, over 4,000 attendees enjoyed 200 sessions and a variety of special events in Nashville. We were also very excited to have nearly 100 academic attendees from over 35 universities. Please check out the PHOTOS and newscast from the event. In addition, the launch of our 1st Annual Student Poster Contest provided our finalists the opportunity to present formally in sessions and then in the EXPO Hall to share their work with conference attendees. The TUN faculty board members selected the winner of the "Most Promising Research" award and conference attendees used the PARTNERS Mobile App to vote for the "Most Practical" and the "People's Choice" awards respectively. All of our semi-finalists did a tremendous job sharing their research projects. After the votes were tallied, we are excited to share the winners of Teradata University Networks 1st Annual Student Poster Contest.
