Technical employees also attend one conference on Kitware each year. While we are welcome to simply attend, listen and learn, many get involved at events by teaching workshops, co-chairing sessions, participating in panel discussions, etc. Conferences are also an opportunity to make important connections with other developers, researchers, and organizations, and share the Kitware mission and philosophy. Great ideas are often realized over a cup of coffee or a pint of beer, after the official event activities have ended for the day. We go to a variety of events, such as SIGGRAPH, OSCON, OpenFOAM, Mil-OSS, MICCAI, VisWeek, CVRP, ICCV, and RSNA. You can check our events calendar to see where we'll be next, and contact us if you'd like to meet up.
