San Diego, Aug. 25, 2003 -- The University of California, San Diego (UCSD) division of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology [Cal-(IT)2
] will showcase its current research projects and focus on future technologies at a conference and open house in late September. Cal-(IT)2
Day@UCSD will be a "day of technology demonstrations and discussions," including a conference at which more than two dozen UCSD faculty will make presentations. Attendees will also tour facilities, and view research posters of Cal-(IT)2
graduate Fellows and undergraduate Scholars.
The event will take place September 24, 2003, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., in the Price Center on the UCSD campus in La Jolla, California. "This event will provide a glimpse at how our world will change as a result of emerging telecommunications and information technologies," said Ramesh Rao, Cal-(IT)2 division director at UCSD and professor in the Jacobs School of Engineering. "This is a chance for professionals, executives, lawmakers and others to experience the future. We will be demonstrating research, development, and deployment projects, including technologies that do not exist anywhere else."
Those technologies include the CyberShuttle. Visitors will be able to ride the world's first regular bus service to offer broadband Web access -- even with the bus traveling at 65 miles per hour. Attendees will also be able to tour the Cal-(IT)2-funded Visualization Center at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, a three-million pixel, wide-screen display, for viewing 3D computer images in an "immersive" environment that is hooked up to a similar facility at San Diego State University. They will also have the chance to visit the construction site of the emerging 215,000-gross-square-foot Cal-(IT)2 Building funded by the State of California.
