'Open,' the NCIIA's 2010 Annual Conference, will be held at the San Francisco Hilton - Financial District. The Exploratorium will be the setting for the annual March Madness for the Mind showcase of collegiate student technology innovations.

Our program is designed to give faculty and students access to the latest knowledge and best teaching practices in the field of technology innovation. The program includes more than 70 presentations and panels, a new series of high impact workshops sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the annual Olympus Innovation Awards (nominate a faculty member now!), and the Venture Well Forum.
