Microsoft Research and Microsoft Argentina welcome you to the Microsoft Research Latin American Faculty Summit 2009. This is our premier event in the region and its fifth edition will be held in Buenos Aires, on May 13th-15th, 2009. We expect 200 academic leaders from Latin America and the rest of the world. Multilateral and Inter-Governmental organizations such as the Inter-American Development Bank, Organization of American States, and other prestigious institutions will be represented.

The central theme this year is "Creative Innovation through Research and Development". It will draw attention to the collaboration of computer scientists in other disciplines, a worldwide trend that is broadening the impact of Computer Science to academia and society; and highlight the successful collaboration between Microsoft Research and Latin American universities.

Panels, presentations, and discussions at the conference will address subjects such as current research in Information and Communications Technologies for development, computing research in Latin America and India, computing technology in education, bioinformatics, and eScience.

This a unique opportunity for leading faculty members and Microsoft researchers, architects, and executives to collectively discuss a vision of the state of the art in computer science and team up to help develop further collaboration. Together, we can pursue new research frontiers that will transform computing and create a better future.

Goals and Objectives:

• Collaboration.

Foster and strengthening partnerships and collaborative relationships between Microsoft researchers and top academic researchers from the Academic Community in Argentina and in the rest of Latin America.
