Two BYU professors attend top Microsoft conference

Two assistant professors in the Computer Science Department at Brigham Young University were invited to the Microsoft Research Faculty Summit 2006 at the Microsoft Conference Center in Redmond, Wash., in July.

Eric Ringger and Michael Jones attended the invitation-only conference, considered the premier gathering of academic researchers, teachers, Microsoft researchers, product group engineers and architects for in-depth presentations and discussions about computing problems and research trends. The theme this year was “Computing at the Center of Transformation.”

As in years past, the conference brought just 350 academics from 175 leading institutions here and abroad to the summit.
