UW President Attends dub Retreat, Notes Importance

Over 100 UW faculty, students, and industrial collaborators came out for the 4th annual dub retreat at the Waterfront Activities Center (WAC) today. The meeting included a celebration of awards, short research talks, and poster sessions. The excitement of the event was bolstered by the attendance of UW President Michael Young. President Young saw talks on topics that included the relevance of dub to Microsoft Research collaborations, the collaborative design with Boeing of concepts for the future flight deck, and World Lab, a new joint institute with Tsinghua University in China to apply human-centered technologies to solving worldwide problems in the areas of environment, health, and education. President Young's extensive remarks concluded “This is something that is really important to the university.”
