Computing on the Brink 2012
Wednesday, February 22, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PST)
What happens when the brightest technologists in the Puget Sound get together to talk, eat, drink and listen to each other?
Computing on the Brink will find out.
Join us in February for Computing on the Brink – with a peek at Bio and Computing. Information exchange overlooking Elliott Bay.
Our area has a tremendous number of technologists working on a wide variety of projects involving computing. Meet them.
In both for-profit and non-profit settings they are exploring problems in global health, personalized medicine, informatics and much more. Discuss their work.
Computing on the Brink will be an informal space for them to talk with peers and to hear presentations from this vast array of talent. Exchange knowledge.
Computing on the Brink will provide a place where those who are working in the trenches can connect with others who are developing novel applications, running an Open Source project or perhaps supporting the information needs of others.They will be working at non-profit institutions or for-profit corporations. There might even be some interested laypeople in the mix.
The plan is to have an opportunity for networking with some good food and drink, along with a couple of short, informal (20 minute) presentations by exciting individuals from the region. These presentations will spark discussions on translating ideas into reality.
EMC-Isilon has been kind enough to provide the space. Now we need you to provide the inspiration.
This should be an invigorating meeting in a wonderful location. If you would like to have some critical input, be sure to attend.
Hurry. Space is limited.
Computing on the Brink is part of the "... on the Brink" series presented by SpreadingScience. These are events devoted to supporting the translation of exciting ideas into reality. SpreadingScience also hosts BioScience on the Brink – the next meeting is planned for March – and is in the planning stages for Emerging Science on the Brink.
