WHAT:    IEEE Technology Time Machine Symposium: 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 recognized 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.

WHEN:    1-3 June 2011

WHERE:    Sheraton Hotel and Towers, Hong Kong
