Announcement of the Center
The Center for Collaborative Technologies at the
University of Washington will develop the
ConferenceXP platform, apply the technologies to
a wide range of educational and collaborative
scenarios, and strengthen the educational and
research communities that use these collaboration
tools. The Center has been funded by Microsoft
Research External Research and Programs for a
period of three years. The Center is a
collaboration between members of the University
of Washingtons Department of Computer Science
and Engineering, the Pacific Northwest Gigapop,
and the ResearchChannel.
