"EECS in a Connected World"

BEARS 2005 offers a unique opportunity to learn about the latest exciting developments in EECS. This year we highlight deep EECS advances enabling computing and communications to connect diverse aspects of our world. Morning sessions on Thursday, Feb. 10 will feature distinguished faculty speakers on a range of topics, including wireless networks, optical communication, the future of the internet, embedded software, machine learning, security, and trust. The afternoon Open House sessions provide a more intimate setting for focused discussions with faculty members and graduate students involved with individual centers and projects. The evening banquet guest speaker will be Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, group president of QUALCOMM.

Friday, February 11, will feature workshops designed to give an in-depth view on particular activities in EECS and its collaborations.

We value the continued support of our industrial partners and look forward to engaging with new ones. We hope to see you at BEARS 2005!
