The following is our Spike Day schedule for 2012.

The purpose of Spike Days is to investigate emerging technologies and determine whether they should be added to DiUS’s technology mix. Originally conceived as a one-day format, DiUS’s Spike Days have been expanded to two days to allow for a deeper dive.
