IBM Outlook and Collaboration Event
March 14, 2010
Organized by TAU/CS and IBM Haifa Research Lab

You are cordially invited to participate in a special seminar organized at Tel Aviv University by IBM Research - Haifa (HRL).

This seminar will start with an overview of the technologies slated to be the main focus of HRL in the years to come. The program will cover three of IBM’s "hottest" research activities, which are also open for collaboration with TAU/CS students. An exciting panel discussion will review the newest fields in academic and industrial research, presenting the views of faculty members and IBM managers. The goal of the seminar is to provide a broader view of potential research topics and opportunities, while helping students plan their career.

The seminar will take place on the Tel Aviv University campus in Melamed auditorium (006), located in the Shenkar building of the Faculty of Exact Sciences. Participation is free of charge but registration is required at the registration page.
