In order to build closer ties with Universities, Microsoft will be holding their annual Faculty Forum in Melbourne on December 13th 2005. Microsoft Research Asia University Relations and Microsoft Australia would like to invite you to the Faculty Forum so you can learn more about what programs and initiatives are in place for Faculty in Australia. We will be having speakers from Microsoft Research Asia, Microsoft University Relations and Microsoft Australia. In addition we will have Associate Professor Paul Roe (Faculty of Information Technology at Queensland University of Technology) and David Jones (School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (RMIT) discuss their experiences with developing and implementing Microsoft related curriculum at their respective Universities. Paul and David arguably offer the most extensive Microsoft technology curriculum in South East Asia.
