For me IBM was always east coast. Failed! Right in the heart of Silicon Valley is the Almaden Research Center located. It is one of eight IBM Research Division facilities worldwide and a premier industrial research lab. At Almaden, some of the finest minds in the industry focus on basic and applied research in computer science, magnetic and optical storage technology, physical and materials science and technology, and scientific and technical application software.
I am looking forward to experience this place at the Almaden Institute, a conference which takes place every year on the research center. This years topic is: »Navigating Complexity: Doing more with less«.
Beyond the conference I will hopefully have the chance to speak to some people about ehealth and elearning.
More picts of the institution are right here.
