The information exchange is designed to foster research collaborations between industry and UC San Diego faculty, and to give employers the opportunity to meet graduate students who will soon be entering the workforce. The program includes research talks by faculty in the morning and an open poster presentation by graduate students in the afternoon. Admission is free.

The event begins with talks by faculty members on the latest research and educational advances in areas such as: networking and the Internet; high performance computing; technology advances in computing, communications and bioengineering; tissue engineering; environmental engineering; and renewal engineering for the civil infrastructure. The technical talks will be followed by a presentation by Dean Robert Conn describing highlights and initiatives for the School.

During the afternoon open poster session, more than 120 of the School's graduate students will be on hand to discuss research in detail. Industry representatives will also display technical exhibits of new product developments. Participating companies include Alliance Pharmaceuticals, Brooktree Division of Rockwell Semiconductors, Cadence Spectrum Design, CliniComp, Cymer, General Atomics, Hewlett Packard Company, HNC Software, Hughes Network Systems, IBM, Kyocera America, National Semiconductor, NCR, Nokia Mobile Phones Americas, Orincon, Overland Data, QUALCOMM, SAIC, Solar Turbines, SONY Electronics, Sun Microsystems, TRW, Uniden SRC, Unisys, and ViaSat.

The event is sponsored by the School of Engineering's Corporate Affiliates Program, a service to build partnerships between the School and industry. The CAP office helps member companies meet faculty who have related research interests, provides individualized access to students for company employment needs, helps coordinate student internship opportunities, and provides a forum for industry to give input on education and research directions.
