On behalf of the Pulse 2023 Team, we cordially invite you to our twelfth annual conference to celebrate the latest developments within the Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science Departments at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign.
Annually, hundreds of students, industry leaders, and several corporate sponsors come together for a week-long recognition of innovation and technology. During this time, we delve into inspiring tech talks, workshops, a hardware and software competition as well as a day-long celebration of women in technology.
Below are some highlights from previous conferences. This year, Pulse will be a mostly in-person conference with a blend of virtual events via Zoom.
