This event is a site visit to IBM's User Centered Design facilities at the IBM Toronto Lab. Several UCD staff will briefly showcase tools they use, work they've completed and processes they use. Breakout sessions will give attendees the opportunity to learn about these topics in more detail by speaking with individual presenters.
Presenters include Karel Vredenburg, Michael Zuliani, Jin Li, and Diego Rivera. These presenters are well-known in the Toronto UCD community and beyond through publications, conference presentations, and teaching and presentations to local university classes and professional organizations. Other IBM UCD staff will also be present to talk to you about UCD at IBM.

I would think this to be more of an educational event rather than a social one.
