Between faculty short talks by Brian Hock, Ph.D. (Austin Peay State University) and Ram Ramachandran, Ph.D. (Vanderbilt University), trainees presented their research in 3-minute talks for the fourth annual Data Blitz.  Winners of the Data Blitz were chosen by votes of the chapter members in attendance for a $50 prize!
