HP Labs Director Dick Lampman is joining top executives from some of the world's most successful companies this week at the inaugural Fortune Innovation Forum, an invitation-only conference exploring how businesses use innovation to gain a competitive edge.

Lampman, who is senior vice president for research at HP, will talk about his evolving role as leader of HP's central research lab, how corporate research has changed and his views on the future during a panel discussion with research directors from Intel, Microsoft and IBM.

“Despite changes in our structure and technologies, the beauty of all this is that innovators still win,” Lampman says. “You develop something unique for HP, something customers value, and so you build a profitable, growing business -- ultimately, that’s what it’s about.”

This conference will bring together what organizer Fortune Magazine calls "some of the most dynamic thinkers and practitioners in the field." Participants include legendary investor Warren Buffett, Google Chairman Eric Schmidt and senior executives from AT&T, JetBlue, Procter & Gamble, General Motors, Cisco and Toyota.

The forum is scheduled for today and tomorrow in New York. Sessions will be interactive, with a mix of interviews, panels, debates and case studies followed by discussions with leading thinkers.

"Innovation today means more than creating and bringing new products to market," Fortune says. "It can mean gaining competitive advantage in almost any arena, from managing people to marshalling financing, from streamlining processes to approaching the global market."
