The NULab is delighted to announce our fall calendar of events. We have some very exciting talks, workshops, and other events planned for the fall, organized around our year-long focus on fake news, information, and misinformation. You can find additional details and registration information for these events at:

NULab events are free and open to the public, but some require registration and guests from outside the Northeastern community should RSVP to sa.connell[at]northeastern[dot]edu.

We hope to see you this fall!
