IEEE First Technology Time Machine Symposium From JUNE 1-3

IEEE, the world’s largest professional association advancing technology for humanity, has announced that it is hosting the first IEEE Technology Time Machine (TTM) Symposium. Being held in Hong Kong, 1-3 June 2011, the IEEE TTM is a unique event for industry leaders, academics and decision makers in governments who direct research and development (R&D) activities, plan research programs, or manage portfolios of research activities. This first of its kind event covering future technologies consists of a series of tutorials on a select set of potentially high-impact emerging technologies, their current state of maturity and scenarios for the future. The agenda consists of presentations given by globally recognised experts who are leaders in their field. The Symposium is structured to facilitate discussions among participants and speakers about the evolutionary and revolutionary advances in technology landscapes leading up to 2020.As the number of participants will be kept relatively small, the IEEE TTM Symposium provides an excellent opportunity for informal interaction among delegates. At the end of the Symposium, there is an opportunity for attendees to visit some leading Hong Kong and Chinese research institutes and industries locally. Designed for senior business leaders and world-renowned innovators, the IEEE TTM Conference sessions will explore critical innovations and future directions in wireless, biotechnology, cloud computing, e-health, smart grid, Internet of Things, disruptive technologies to replace silicon, etc. Keynote speakers and panellists will help audiences understand and appreciate how the technology trends are going to impact R&D and business sectors. Speakers and sessions for the first IEEE TTM include: China’s Growing Role in High Tech Industry and Global R&D Thinking on Transformation of Information Communications Technologies Prof. Hequan Wu, Academician and former Vice-President of Chinese Academy of Engineering, China; Impact of Technology on Environment Technology’s contribution to creating an information society friendly to humans and the earth Mr. Nobuhiro Endo President (Representative Director), NEC, Japan;Internet of Things CeNSE: A Central Nervous System for the Earth; Dr. Peter Hartwell, Distinguished Technologist, Hewlett-Packard, USA;Cloud Computing The Future of Cloud Computing Mr. Joe Weinman, Worldwide Lead, Communications, Media, and Entertainment Industry Solutions, Hewlett-Packard, USA; Smart Grid The Smart Grid:  Power for the 21st Century Prof. George Arnold, National Coordinator for Smart Grid Interoperability, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), USA; E-Health Engineering the 21st Century Healthcare Prof. Yongmin Kim, Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Washington, USA; Carbon Nanostructures and Conducting Polymers in Electronics Prof. Henning Sirringhaus, Hitachi Professor of Electron Device Physics, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, UK; Future Mobile Services Thinking on the run Prof. Hugh Bradlow, Chief Technology Officer, Telstra, Australia; Advances in Biomedical Engineering How Do We Make Future Neurally Integrated Prosthetic Devices Speak The Same Language as the Nervous System?
