Special Events

In addition to the exciting technical program, exhibits and extraordinary keynotes, there will be two special events.

Dinner at the Rock Town Distillery

Dec. 7th, 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Rock Town Distillery is the first legal distillery of any kind in Arkansas since prohibition. An artisan craft distillery that uses grains grown in-state to distill award-winning spirits; a true grain-to-glass distillery; the spirits are carefully distilled from corn, wheat and rye grown within 125 miles of the distillery. It is also a first-rate event location and we will enjoy some authentic Arkansas barbeque here.

The George W. Donaghey Emerging Analytics Center (EAC) at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) is a research center that houses an energetic group of faculty, researchers, and students performing innovative research in technology, infrastructure and applications for virtual reality, visualization, and interactive technologies. The UALR EAC was founded thanks to a generous grant from the George W. Donaghey Foundation.
