Annual Washington Area CTO SummitAnnual Summit
|Date:||Thursday, May 16, 2013|
|Time:||4:00 PM – 7:30 PM|
|Topic:||Way Beyond the Mouse – Innovation in Man Machine Interaction|
|How far we've come from punched cards! Interactions between computers and humans have become so natural and ingrained that we find our children using touchpad devices before they've mastered speech. But the frontier of human computer interaction is just that... still a frontier. The developments from both academia and industry promise revolutionary changes in the way we use smart machines. The CTO Roundtable is bringing together the leaders in human computer interaction technology for this year's Summit. The Summit has established a reputation for bringing you ideas and new technology way before it becomes mainstream. We believe this program is no exception. As in all previous Summits, the audience will consist of approximately 120 technology leaders from our area attending on an invitation basis. With this audience, Summit side discussions are the added highlight of the evening.|

Dr. Ben Shneiderman, our keynote speaker, is a founding director of the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory,
