Please see the following important announcements from University Information Technology Services:
Four days until “Email Holiday” July 25 (12:01 a.m.) – July 28 (6 a.m.)
Following a three-day email and calendar holiday, UWM faculty, students and staff will have access to their new Microsoft Office 365 email and calendar accounts at 6:00 a.m. on July 28. Before then, visit the pre and post-migration checklists so your account will be ready for the trip, and optimized for the future.
Get the most out of the new tools and services by taking advantage of Learning TECHniques’ on-demand training sessions that are designed to accommodate all learning styles and schedules, including self-paced tutorials and an Office 365 playlist of Lynda.com training videos. Learning TECHniques synchronous training sessions begin July 28. Before then, attend one of four July Office 365 demos, or watch a streaming version online.

Two-day science visualization course August 25-26, 2014
UWM will host a two-day workshop sponsored by the Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering (VSCSE) on August 25-26, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in Enderis Hall 107.
The event begins with an introduction to visualization, and will cover all aspects of visualizing data from a broad variety of domains. Industry best practices, methods and techniques for dealing with diverse (abstract and spatial) data will be demonstrated.
Participants can expect to roll up their sleeves to tackle real world problems for which visualization is needed, and will be led through the process of visualizing data to gain insight. Register on the VSCSE site.
