Sebastopol, CA -- Program planning is in the final stages for the Where 2.0 Conference, happening May 29-30, 2007 at The Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, California. Location industry visionaries are scheduled to present their futuristic ideas and groundbreaking projects in two full days of keynotes, lightning talks, panel discussions, and demonstrations. Now in its third year, the Where 2.0 Conference will provide attendees with the opportunity to discover the technologies, trends, and developments making a difference in location-based technology.
Here is a sample of the high profile sessions included in the 2007 line-up:
Rounding off the conference will be a number of informal events including Ignite Where, a series of rapid-fire, five-minute presentations by geeks and techies that demonstrate how location-based innovations can improve any area of life. Another highlight will be the Where Fair, a science fair-style showcase of cutting-edge, location-based projects from research, academia, and yet-to-be-discovered entrepreneurs who are working out of garages and university labs. Finally, Where 2.0 will host an exhibit hall where the latest products and services related to location will be displayed.
