We would like to invite all faculty/educators and students to 
participate in *IBM University Day* on *Friday, November 19, (9:00 AM - 
3:00 PM)* at the *IBM Employee Activity and Fitness Center* in *RTP, 
NC*. Twice each year, RTP CAS sponsors IBM University Day, as an 
opportunity to bring together the IBM NC research/development/services 
and local/regional academic communities. One goal is to allow the 
universities to inform the local IBM community of ongoing projects, new 
developments and opportunities for collaboration (highlighting skills 
and strengths, etc.) - and vice versa - hopefully helping to launching 
new projects. Another goal is to bring future employees (students) 
together with prospective employers (IBM managers and recruiters) - with 
a student poster as one very effective approach in advertising one's 
self. The event consists of three tracks: main hall presentations 
throughout the entire day, parallel back room workshops and meetings, 
and poster sessions and tables/booths in the hallways.

At this fall's event, as part of the main hall presentations, *executive 
keynote speaker IBM Vice President of Predictive Analytics, Deepak 
Advani*, will discuss opportunities for collaboration in both research 
and teaching around the IBM analytics portfolio (which includes among 
many others, SPSS, Cognos and ILOG) Later in the day, there will be a 
special workshop on IBM analytics, where faculty will have the 
opportunity to discuss collaborative opportunities.

Most exciting, *the chairs/heads of many departments (including Computer 
Science, Electrical and Computing Engineering, Operations Research, 
Statistical Science and others) from the local universities* will also 
provide overviews of their programs, highlighting the educational and 
research opportunities their faculty and students represent.

Backroom workshops and tables/booths will be sponsored by several 
important IBM university relations programs. *IBM recruiters* will be 
present to speak with students. Representatives from the* IBM Academic 
Initiative* will also be available to discuss its many program benefits, 
including the availability of most of the IBM software catalogue for use 
in teaching and research, absolutely free. And leaders of the *IBM Cloud 
Academy* (which collaborates with universities around cloud computing) 
and the *IBM University Delivery Services *program (which trains and 
hires students to work on services engagements, including those around 
the Virtual Computing Lab and cloud computing) are also planning workshops.

Therefore, please reserve the date, and encourage your fellow faculty 
and students to attend. Feel free to forward this announcement to others 
in your department, college or university. Both students and faculty

A detailed agenda will be forthcoming. Directions are given immediately 
below. Contact *Andy Rindos ([log in to unmask]) *with any questions, as 
well as to submit a poster or register for the event.
