Virginia Tech is going to South By Southwest this month to showcase its research to an audience of industry leaders at the annual festival.

The university will introduce a collection of research projects that combine creativity, technology, and innovation to create experiential learning experiences at the South By Southwest Trade Show March 13-16.

The trade show highlights the integrations and overlaps among South By Southwest’s converging industries and hosts a diverse range of forward-thinking exhibitors, serving as a hub for new ideas, innovations, and business connections.

“South By Southwest is the perfect place for Virginia Tech to show the world the ways we are using technology and creative thinking to drive innovation,” said Virginia Tech President Tim Sands. “The projects we’ll have on hand represent how we’re integrating science, education, arts, and design to give students broad experience collaborating across fields in research areas involving the improvement of autonomous systems, development of new materials for application-specific needs, and use of data analytics and design approaches to understand complex problems and aid decision-making.”
