Welcome to ISR's 2004 Research Forum

Thank you for making the Forum a success!

View Forum Photos.


This event brings together researchers, leaders in industry, and technical practitioners in a multi-disciplinary environment to:

  • discuss current research areas and technical trends in the fields of software development and interactive collaborative technologies;
  • showcase current ISR research;
  • formulate visions on strategic future research and technological directions;
  • encourage interaction among academia and industry through exchange of ideas and sharing of experiences.

A major goal is to encourage collaborative research and technology transition.

Themes. This year's Forum focuses on joint industry/academia concerns in open source development; bridging the gap between research and practice; use case scenarios; weblogs; and areas such as software architecture, software design, CSCW, interaction and collaboration.

Program Highlights.

We are pleased to feature a keynote presentation by Mitch Kapor, Founder and Chair, Open Source Applications Foundation and Founder of Lotus Development Corporation and the designer of Lotus 1-2-3.

Other program features include:

  • New this year is a "students only" session in the morning. A major goal is to build a community of regional software and informatics focused students. Students will be able to present posters to each other, gather feedback on research, foster relationships for future collaborative work, and network with peers.

  • A panel discussion on "Open Source Success and Challenges" focusing on industry successes and research challenges. A panel of experts will discuss their experience, insights, and opinions with the development of open source software systems that have been deployed in industrial or enterprise settings.

  • Multiple presentations focusing on ISR's relationships with industry partners.

  • An evening reception highlighted by ISR research project posters and demonstrations. This always popular portion of the Forum will feature an even larger number of posters and demonstrations than previous years.
