Founded in December 2015, the first assembly of the midweSTS network occurred in September of 2016 in Chicago, Illinois at the Illinois Institute of Technology. This archive formally maintains documentation of materials and practices used by conference organizers and participants of that first gathering, in addition to subsequent events coordinated by graduate students and their faculty sponsors. As a living document and active process, this website can only partially memorialize the hard work and dedication of people involved in organizing for midweSTS. Nonetheless, it is here where we work to remember the many hands and institutions involved in helping realize the midweSTS network in form and function.
