Reflections | Projections is a tech conference organized and run by students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
We draw students, speakers, and companies from around the world. Join us to listen to tech talks from across the industry, to participate in an Artificial Intelligence programming competition in Mechmania, to solve puzzles throughout the conference during PuzzleBang!, and to attend our job and startup fairs.
The conference is free and open to anyone regardless of age, major, job, or affiliation with the University of Illinois. So come join a discussion led by some of the brightest minds in the business about the bleeding edge of the tech industry!
Don't miss out on the first event of the conference! Join us for our Startup Panel to kick off the event. Come and listen to some of the best in the industry.

Willard Airport is located south of UIUC. If driving, head north from the airport on the 45 and turn right onto Springfield – you'll soon find yourself on UIUC campus! Alternatively, you can catch a cab or Uber from the airport, headed towards Matthews and Stoughton.
Siebel Center is located 1 mile from the Champaign Amtrak Station. Most buses will take you to campus. The 100S and 120E run every few minutes. Ride one of these buses to the intersection of Wright St and White St, then walk east on Stoughton and you will find yourself at the Siebel Center!
Most amenities are available within walking distance of the Siebel Center. However, if walking isn't for you then Champaign-Urbana's public transit system can take you where you need to go. Routes can be mapped using Google Maps or the CUMTD app and each ride will cost you $1. No change is given on the buses, so bring exact fare with you!
