About the Event
Mark Abel entered U-M as a Physics and Math undergrad. After a life-altering discussion
with a Physics professor, Mark transferred to the College of Engineering and became an engineer and computer
scientist. Mark considers this to be one of the best and luckiest decisions of his life.
In his 20 years at Intel, Mr. Abel’s teams have won or shared Intel’s highest honor, the Intel Achievement
Award, seven times for the creation of new technologies and new businesses for Intel including the
invention and delivery of technologies that have shipped in over a billion PCs. Before joining Intel in 1991,
Mr. Abel held research and leadership positons with Bell Labs, Xerox PARC, US West Advanced Technologies,
and Siemens. He is the author/co-author of over 20 journal and conference papers including several
frequently cited works in the Computer Supported Cooperative Work literature. Mark is also a frequent
industry speaker including serving as an Intel Distinguished Lecturer for over a decade. Mr. Abel has an
MS degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University and a BSE degree in Electrical Engineering,
Summa Cum Laude, from the University of Michigan.
