An introductory session featured the CEOs of Digital Knowledge Ventures, the organization that was the interface between the market and the University, and Fathom, the University's knowledge portal. The demonstrations were samplings of projects identified as having a commercial potential. The afternoon concluded with a number of kiosks for a hands-on view of selected projects.
