TechHorizons UCR is for anyone interested in the latest and upcoming commercially useful technology.
The University of California, Riverside is holding the "TechHorizons UCR" conference May 15 and 16 showcasing how advances in engineering technologies can transform industries as diverse as healthcare, alternative fuels, wireless networks and exotic materials. For details, call Joe DiGregorio at (951) 827-6106 or send and e-mail to
"TechHorizons UCR: Connecting Engineering Research to the Market" goes beyond the typical university research review. The Bourns College of Engineering, along with industry partners, will present current laboratory research with near-, mid- and long-term commercialization potential in the following areas:
* Intelligent systems technologies - impacts on automation, autonomous navigation and wireless communications.
* Synthetic fuels and renewable energy - with the economic and geopolitical volatility of oil, and the environmental problems associated with it, attention is focused on what's new in renewable fuels technologies such as biomass, hydrogen fuel cell and solar.
* Nanomaterials, devices and circuits - the future of nanotechnology in electronics, opto-electric devices and pharmaceuticals will fuel he growth of a potential trillion dollar industry in the next decade.
* Sensors and sensor technology - from surveillance to water and food safety, sensor technology and new developments in miniaturization, cost reduction and integrated arrays raise the understanding and management of the environment in ways not thought possible a few years ago.
* Databases, data mining and knowledge discovery - distilling knowledge from vast amounts of data will allow researchers to explore applications beyond market research to meet new and emerging challenges.
* Environmental engineering for the public good - is putting better information into the hands of policy makers and regulators to reduce and prevent environmental degradation of air, water and soil.
* Embedded systems, networked technology and network security - harnesses the limited computing power of small devices in networks that can sense, monitor and control for system safety, reliability and convenience.
* Materials engineering - the development of new materials and composites, and the improvement of existing materials for uses in manufacturing, avionics and medical devices.
* Bioengineering: Future prospects for the health enterprise - explores how the intersection of biological science and engineering is leading to advances, such as revolutionary medical devices, targeted pharmaceuticals and new cellular and molecular diagnostic tools for detecting diseases such as diabetes and cancer.
* The future of computers and computing - explores where high-end computing should move -- toward powerful networks of small computers or more potent mainframes? Should the focus be on more powerful hardware or more flexible software? And what impact will computing have on the life sciences?
The Keynote speaker at the 6 p.m. Tuesday night dinner is world-renowned molecular biologist Leroy E. Hood, M.D., Ph.D. He is the founder and president of the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle and is considered the founder of "systems biology," the study of how components of a system affect the overall function of that system. Hood holds 14 breakthrough patents in the biomedical field and is founder of ten biotechnology companies. Among his patents is the DNA gene sequencer, which laid the foundation for the Human Genome Project.
Among Hood's achievements are induction into the Inventors Hall of Fame later this spring; the 2006 Heinz Award, among the world's most distinguished prizes for individual achievement; the 2003 Lemelson-MIT Prize for Invention and Innovation; and the 2002 Kyoto Prize in Advanced Technology.
Industry research & development executives, economic development leaders, engineers and scientists, investors and venture capitalists are encouraged to attend TechHorizons UCR to see the vision of the future of applied technologies explored at the Bourns College of Engineering. The college, founded in 1989, is one of the fastest growing engineering schools in the nation in both size and reputation.
About University of California, Riverside
The University of California, Riverside is a doctoral research university, a living laboratory for groundbreaking exploration of issues critical to Inland Southern California, the state and communities around the world. Reflecting California's diverse culture, UCR's enrollment of about 17,000 is projected to grow to 21,000 students by 2010. The campus is proposing a medical school and already has reached the heart of the Coachella Valley by way of the UCR Palm Desert Graduate Center. With an annual statewide economic impact of nearly $1 billion, UCR is actively shaping the region's future. To learn more, visit www.ucr.edu or call (951) UCR-NEWS.
