Carnegie Mellon University Silicon Valley and eCLIC Collaborate to Support Pacific Telecommunications Council

Since 2005, eCLIC (the Emergency Communications Leadership and Innovation Center) has evangelized the development of democratized innovation and collaborative leadership to help create “Connected, Protected & Educated Communities” (CPEC), worldwide. For several years, the eCLIC Chairman, Pat Lanthier, spread this message at the Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC) Annual Conference’s “Emergency Communications & Disaster Management Workshop” (ECDM) with Ken Zita, President of Network Dynamics. In 2009, eCLIC and Carnegie Mellon University Silicon Valley (CMU-SV) joined forces to help realize the eCLIC vision. eCLIC was pleased to announce that Carnegie Mellon University Silicon Valley/eCLIC officially supported PTC’11, and they provide support again for PTC’12 in Oahu, January 14-18, 2012.

PTC’12 and the ECDM workshop are significant international events. The overall conference attracts thousands of top level participants from communications technology/service companies and policymaking bodies from 60 countries. The ECDM workshop (Jan. 15, 2012) features speakers from US Pacific Command, NOAA, FEMA, LLNL, INMARSAT, Redcom, Delorme, Carnegie Mellon University’s Disaster Management Initiative (DMI), and eCLIC.

All are invited to collaborate with eCLIC and CMU-SV at PTC’12, and beyond, in helping to realize the promise of “Connected, Protected, Educated Communities” enabled by innovative technologies, approaches and leadership. eCLIC and Carnegie Mellon University Silicon Valley have realized various facets of the CPEC promise, in actual use. More importantly, they look forward to working collaboratively with all of you. Please visit the DMI website for more information.

Please contact Pat Lanthier, eCLIC Chair or Dr. Martin Griss, Director, CMUSV, with any questions.
