On November 21, 2013, a group from MTL visited IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York. Dr. Ghavam Shahidi of IBM and Dr. William Holber, Associate Director of Industrial relations for MTL, organized the visit. At the close of the meeting Dr. Shahidi noted, "We in IBM Research are very appreciative of the visit by our colleagues from MIT. We are highly impressed by work carried out in MTL and by the presentations. These close contacts lay the foundation for even closer collaboration between IBM and MIT in both technology and design."

The MTL presenters consisted of two faculty (Professor Vladimir Bulovic and Professor Tomas Palacios) and 8 graduate students. The day's schedule was the following:
