History of LabMan

LabMan 2019 is being hosted by the Illinois Institute of Technology. Let us know if you will be able to attend.

The Academic Lab Management Conference, also known as LabMan, was formed back in 2000 for professionals responsible for the maintenance of computer labs in education settings. As technology in labs continues to evolve, LabMan focuses on the overarching aspects of academic computing services which includes computer labs, bring your own device (BYOD), wireless support, classroom support, and innovation spaces for students and other patrons. A big thanks to the University of Maryland (College Park, MD) for hosting LabMan 2018. LabStats has been involved with LabMan since 2005 and for most years has had the honor of supporting LabMan as the Premier Sponsor. We are working hard to make this and every LabMan a fun and educational conference for all of our friends. Can't wait to see you at LabMan 2019!

Thank you Illinois Institute of Technology (Chicago, IL) for hosting LabMan 2019.
