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.
