Karl Ulrich will be the keynote speaker at Cyon Research Corporation's Congress on the Future of Engineering Software event, a cross-disciplinary think tank "that brings executives from design, engineering, architectural, development and technology companies together to examine the role engineering technology plays in business success."
Professor, author and entreprenuer Ulrich, whose passion is human-powered transportation, invented the Xootr (picture at right) with his brother Nathan, and the company they founded later released the Swift Folder (picture at left). No mere desk jockey, Ulrich also enters competitions himself, having come in first place in the 2006 Mt. Washington Hill Climb (in the Folder category).
COFES will be held on April 10-13th in Scottsdale, Arizona. You can read about it here, but unfortunately that doesn't mean you can go; it's invite only. We'll post coverage as it becomes available.
