Netcetera will showcase Georgetown professors, staff, students and alumni from Georgetown, American University and the University of Maryland, as well as professionals from the online realm. The speakers’ topics are grouped into the categories of “Community Building,” “Food for Thought,” and “Outside the Lines.”
The TEDxGeorgetown event is free and will take place in the Lohrfink Auditorium is split in to three sections between 4 and 8 p.m. Those interested in attending may RSVP online in order to receive priority seating.
