President-elect Donald Trump has reportedly invited a group of tech-industry leaders to a meeting next week in New York.

According to a report from USA Today, Trump's transition team sent out invites to a December 14 roundtable. The report doesn't include a full list of tech leaders who were invited, but Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins and Oracle Co-CEO Safra Catz are among the executives who plan to attend the meeting.

Meg Whitman, the CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, won't be there, the company told USA Today. Whitman, a former GOP candidate for California governor, supported Hillary Clinton in the election.

A representative for the president-elect didn't respond to a request for comment.

The summit could help patch up relations between Trump and tech leaders, who mostly backed Hillary Clinton for the presidency. The meeting could also allow both sides to discuss sensitive topics raised during the campaign, such as net neutrality and immigration.
