UC Irvine has presented eight “Smart Labs” workshops over past years and provided presentations in Singapore, China, and the U.K. This year our Smart Labs workshop will be entirely different - providing new content based on our continuing improvements, effectiveness testing, and lessons learned that we hope will be valuable to past Smart Labs workshop attendees.
Although this year’s workshop will be aimed at Smart Labs adopters and past attendees, newcomers are welcome but strongly advised to review the following materials in order to understand the basic attributes of smart labs, providing foundational knowledge for the March 17-18 workshop:
Day one will cover Smart Labs as a program, including the business case that is more compelling after a decade of experience than we had initially predicted; how large organizations such as National Laboratories are implementing the program; and the value of Smart Labs in the context of an infectious disease pandemic. Day two will take a deep dive into the more technical aspects of Smart Labs design, including the extensive informatics layer and our findings about ventilation effectiveness attributes that contribute to aerosol exposure control.
