Bring Your Questions
Four of the HDD industry’s leading technologists, Dr. Bill Cain, Dr. Currie Munce, Dr. Mark Re, and Dr. Pantas Sutardja will comprise a panel driven exclusively by audience questions around DISKCON USA 2011’s theme: “Retaining the Areal Density Advantage.”
But that doesn't mean you can't ask Mark Re, "Why can't Mendenhall get a first down?" So whatever your pressing questions, bring them to the keynote dinner on Oct. 19th.
