WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

UNCW will hold its 13th annual Wilmington Information Technology eXchange (WITX) on April 12 at the university's Computer Information Systems building.

The event, which will run from 2 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., is open to the public as well as the UNCW community.

“I look at this event as a way for the university and the community to come together professionally,” said Tom Janicki, WITX chair and professor of information systems in the Cameron School of Business. “The event exposes students to IT professionals, and industry professionals get to see UNCW student research.”

Anne Buff, a business solutions manager for SAS Best Practices at SAS Institute, will be the keynote speaker.

The event will include exhibits, "learning eXchanges" that will last one to two hours, and "Ignite WITX" presentations that will last about five minutes.

While there is no charge for UNCW students, faculty and staff, members of the public will be charged a fee to attend the keynote address and learning eXchanges. The Ignite sessions and exhibits are free.
