Upcoming Event

IT Workshop: February 6, 2012

Berkeley Roundtable on the International Economy (BRIE) is partnering with Center for Japanese Studies (CJS) to host a joint-conference to be held at Berkeley in February 2012.  Leading academics and industry experts will be invited to lead and participate in discussion. The focus will be on critical issues for information technology: the emerging platforms of Cloud Computing and Next Generation Mobile, along with digital content, and the policy and market structure issues linking domestic and global markets.

The workshop will last one full day, with two conference dinners and one lunch.  We will have a single keynote presentation by Dr. Jun Murai that will be open to the campus community.
