Intel Embedded Research & Education Summit 2012 Full Agenda

The intent of this conference was to work with Professors & School Faculty Members from around the world to discuss how Intel, specifically the Intelligent Systems (formerly Embedded) Group, tries to reach out to institutes of higher learning to not only work on build curriculum that prepare students for real world challenges, but also cultivate relationships that enable some of the most interesting research projects possible – some which seem to lie on the cusp of “Science Fiction.”

Below is the Agenda for the 3 day event, along with as many of the presentations as we could post publicly to help to broaden the awareness & impact that our summit can have on schools from around the world. It is our hope that many more people than were able to physically attend this event will be able to view the presentations & get a better understand of what we are doing.
