That's IT!


More than 500 business leaders, entrepreneurs, academics, government officials, Rensselaer alumni, and university students gathered in Asia in January to attend Rensselaer's first major international IT conferences. Titled "How to Create, Grow, and Make Money in the Information Industry," the three conferences-held in Taipei, Hong Kong, and Beijing-focused on the future of information technology.
   Each conference featured IT leaders who are helping to shape the industry. Representatives from top corporations, U.S. and Asian industry experts, and Rensselaer faculty, administrators, and alumni discussed innovative ways to discover and capitalize on new opportunities in IT. Sessions were designed to assist professionals in recognizing and managing their companies' IT needs. Two Rensselaer alumni, Alfred R.K.L. Li '73, principal and chairman of Asia, KLM Capital Group, Hong Kong, and Vice Admiral Fong-Ping Shen '80, special consultant to the chief of the general staff of the Ministry of National Defense of Taiwan, Republic of China, engaged the large audiences during their keynote addresses.
