John Gage, former chief researcher and vice president of the Science Office for Sun Microsystems, will give the main keynote address at the Congress On the Future of Engineering Software (COFES) 2011.

Sponsored by Geomagic, Gage’s keynote will trace the history of computing, from the original visions of Ivan Sutherland’s Sketchpad to ‘Flying into the heart of atoms, from computer-aided design to network-aided design’.

He will discuss how we can democratise the power of CAD by making design tools available to all the world’s schools and communities, emphasising designing for energy- and water-efficient objects, systems, communities and cities.

COFES 2011 will be held in Scottsdale, Arizona, on 14-17 April, 2011.
