Announcement - Cybera Summit 2010 early-bird registration due

Cybera Summit 2010 Registration

Leonard Brody, one of Canada's leading technology forecasters and business strategists, will be headlining Cybera's annual fall event this year: Summit 2010  – Driving Alberta’s Digital Evolution. Early Bird Registration rates are available until 25 August.

This year's two-day program takes place 21-22 September at The Banff Centre and will focus on the projects, technologies and opportunities driving the evolution of digital-based R&D sectors and economies. “Digital” refers to anything that involves data management, pervasive broadband, network-enabled platforms, cloud and advanced computing, or online/web-integrated resources (ie. Web 2.0). These are the tools that are driving new innovations in business and groundbreaking discoveries in research and development.

Through panel sessions, keynote presentations, demos and networking opportunities, participants will explore a variety of topics such as:

  • Cloud Computing for the Masses
  • The Nexus of Science Policy and ICT Policy: Implications and Outcomes
  • The Economics Behind Cyberinfrastructure
  • Ultra-Efficient Data Centres: Design and Application
  • The Evolution of Collaborative Science

Brody, co-author of the best selling books Innovation Nation: Canadian Leadership from Jurassic Park to Java and Everything I Needed to Know About Business... I Learned from a Canadian, is scheduled to speak on the morning of Wednesday, 22 September. Details on additional keynote speakers will be released in the coming weeks.
