Speakers: *Avron Barr & Shirley Tessler, Co-Directors, Software Research team, Stanford Computer Industry Project (SCIP) Avron Barr and Shirley Tessler are Co-directors of SCIPís Software Industry Study, with Professor William Miller. Ms. Tessler has degrees from Wharton and Stanford in Finance and Computer Science. Much of her career has been in commercial banking and corporate finance. Mr. Barr studied Computer Science at Stanford, edited the four-volume Handbook of Artificial Intelligence, and co-founded a Silicon Valley software start-up in 1981. Mr. Barr and Ms. Tessler are also the principals of Aldo Ventures, Inc., a management consulting firm focused on software and its strategic use in business. Since it started in 1994, the SCIP Software Industry Study has systematically identified and analyzed the issues that will shape the commercial use of software, including piracy, patents, antitrust, project management, the Internet, globalization, litigation, software quality and project failures. Since the fall of 1996, their study has focused on the ramifications of the worldwide shortage of talented software people. A new initiative will be presented at this yearís Forum, investigating the dramatic changes anticipated during the next decade in corporate software development and procurement practices. *Dr. Simon Wong, Professor of Electrical Engineering Specialty: Integrated Circuit Technologies, and Devices Prof. S. Simon Wong studies the fabrication and design of high performance integrated systems. His group focuses on developing new device and interconnection technologies, as well as understanding their impact on circuit and system performance. Dr. Wong received the BEE and BME degrees from the University of Minnesota at Minneapolis in 1975 and 1976 respectively, and MS and PhD degrees from the University of California at Berkeley in 1978 and 1983 respectively. From 1978 to 1980, he was with National Semiconductor Corporation designing MOS dynamic memories. From 1980 to 1985, he was with Hewlett Packard Laboratories working on advanced MOS technologies. From 1985 to 1988, he was an Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical Engineering at Cornell University. In 1988, he joined Stanford University where he is now Professor of Electrical Engineering. He has been visiting the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology since 1994. His research interests include high performance device structures, advanced interconnection technologies and multi-chip modules. Current research concentrates on interconnect technologies and high frequency modeling of interconnect network. He is a fellow of IEEE.
