The Second EITA Young Investigator Conference

(the EITA-YIC 2012)


"Leadership, Innovation, Growth"

The Sheraton Palo Alto Hotel

Palo Alto, California, U.S.A.


Thursday-Friday, July 26-27, 2012



The second EITA Young Investigator Conference (the EITA-YIC 2012), coordinated by the Emerging Information and Technology Conference (EITA), is an international forum. It will be held on Thursday-Friday, July 26-27, 2012 at the Sheraton Palo Alto hotel (Stanford University), Palo Alto, California, U.S.A. The conference theme of the EITA-YIC 2012 is "Leadership, Innovation, Growth". Please visit the website at for more conference details.

The main purpose of the new EITA YIC Forum is designed to aid the career development and shape the career plans of promising young investigators in emerging technologies and services.

The new EITA YIC Forum will provide an opportunity for collegial interaction with senior faculty members and investigators having successful careers across the broad spectrum of emerging technology and services research.

There is a projected future shortage of emerging technology and services researchers, and research funding is difficult to obtain. This retreat is aimed at providing guidance, tactics and strategies to help improve the chances of achieving a successful career in emerging technology and services research. The aims are:

  • To provide young investigators with a friendly and constructive atmosphere in order to present their research and learn from each other. 
  • To foster the pursuit of research in emerging technologies and services by young investigators.
  • To disseminate vital information required for pursuing a career in research.
  • To meet, network with senior faculty members and investigators, and to establish extramural research mentorship.
  • To enable young investigators to contribute to the development of emerging technologies and services.


Definition of Young Investigator: active basic, applied, theoretical, and experimental research, ideally less than 10 years working in emerging technologies and services.


(Stanford University - Jaclyn Chen)
