SCIx to showcase experts and resources at the University of Utah.
November 4th, 2011
The Keynote speaker for SCIx will be Dr. John E. Warnock, co-founder of Adobe in 1982 with Dr. Charles Geschke. The two men have worked closely together to develop a stream of pioneering software products that leverage Adobe's strength in transforming how people create, process and engage with information.
"SCIx is open to our academic and industry partners to explore everything that is going on with computer imaging at the U, and most importantly, find new ways our expertise can be combined and exploited," says Chris Johnson, founder and director of the SCI Institute, which is home to nearly 200 faculty, students and staff. "We hope to create with SCIx the environment to foster new ways of thinking about complex problems, in a way that will not only help Utah's and the nation's economies, but enrich the lives of people everywhere."
SCIx is a two day introduction to the U's experts and computing resources. The conference was created to strengthen collaboration between the SCI Institute and other academic researchers, and also companies interested in new research and product development.
