Engineering Symposium On Emergency Management Set For April 20

"Emergency Management" is the subject of the 2006 Paul D. Scholz Symposium on Technology and its Role in Society to be held from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Thursday, April 20, at Macbride Auditorium on the University of Iowa Campus.

Speakers will include: Michael Davis, Duane Arnold Energy Center; Bonnie D. Rubin, University of Iowa Hygienic Laboratory; and Col. Duane P. Gapinski, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The purpose of the annual symposium is to provide a forum to discuss aspects of technology that will affect society both today and in the future. The annual technology symposium was renamed in 1993 in honor of Paul D. Scholz, who received numerous awards for his teaching and served as advisor to Tau Beta Pi for 20 years and as associate dean of the UI College of Engineering from 1979 until his death in 1992.

The symposium, which is free and open to the public, is co-sponsored by the UI College of Engineering chapter of Tau Beta Pi, a national engineering honor society; Tau Beta Pi alumni; the UI Student Government; and the UI College of Engineering.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact the UI College of Engineering at 319-335-5764.
