Each year, Microsoft Research invites academic investigators with whom it has been collaborating to present their research progress and findings at an overall project review meeting. At the External Research Symposium held on March 30–31, 2009, more than 130 researchers joined colleagues at Microsoft Research in Redmond, Washington, to review these projects, compare findings, and discuss their investigative goals and strategies.
The event included 30 major presentations, as well as poster sessions where more than 100 projects were explained and reviewed. The researchers fielded numerous questions about the technologies developed, next steps planned for their investigations, and any new directions indicated by the findings. One of the major categories examined focused on Earth, Energy, and Environment.
You can find more information about the symposium here. I included the link to the environment related sessions below. There are some really fascinating sessions. Enjoy!
