Silvio Meira is one of the greatest software engineering researchers in Brazil, and chief scientist at C.E.S.A.R. (Center for Advanced Studies and Systems of Recife), a private nonprofit institute for innovation that operates in the field of information technology and communication in two fronts: product development (in areas such as Digital TV, mobile, web applications, open source and artificial intelligence) and business incubation (already created more than thirty new IT companies). C.E.S.A.R. won the FINEP prize for the most innovative research institution in Brazil, was voted as an example of business setup by the World Economic Forum and received an honorable mention in the Stockholm Challenge, an award that brings together the best IT projects in the world. Silvio is also one of the most active articulators of Porto Digital, an initiative of the Pernambuco state government, which brings together over 100 companies related to IT (including C.E.S.A.R.) and has become the largest pole of technological entrepreneurship in the state, and possibly in the country.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
