I’ll be Presenting at the Forum Oxford Future Technologies Conference

You might have noticed my earlier post on my upcoming Oxford University course on LTE Services I'll be doing together with Ajit Jaokar after Easter. In addition to that I am happy to announce that I've also been invited to speak at this year's Forum Oxford Future Technologies Conference on Friday, April 24, 2009.

My topic: Evolution of Mobile Networks. Impact and Possibilities for Future Services.

As I attended last year as a visitor myself, I fully agree with Tomi Ahonen that this is the "can't miss event" of the year and it's at a very moderate price as well. Most of last year's presentations were filmed and the event's web site has links to the individual presentations.

Here's the provisional agenda:

09:00 start (speakers shown in order of presentations)

* Professor William Webb, Head of Research and Development, Ofcom
Presentation: Wireless Communications: The Future Revisited
(I reviewed his book on the same topic here)

* Nick Allott, Chief Technical Officer, OMTP

* Graham Trickey, Senior Director, GSM Association (tbc)

* Phil Northam, Global Manager, Samsung Mobile Innovator
Presentation: 'War is Peace'.

* Martin Sauter, Wireless Consultant and Author, WirelessMoves
Presentation: Evolution of Mobile Networks. Impact and Possibilities for Future Services.

* Mark Curtis, CEO, Flirtomatic
Presentation: Dislocation of Expectation: the Challenges of a Mobile Start-up.

* Simon Cavill, Chief Technology Officer / Director of Strategy, Mi-Pay
Presentation: “Show me the Money!” – Why mobile money is this year's Next Big Thing.

* Professor Ed Candy, Chief Technology Officer, 3 Group

* Tony Fish, CEO, AMF Ventures
Presentation: My Digital Footprint.

* Helen Keegan, Specialist in Mobile Marketing, Advertising and Media, Beep Marketing
Presentation: Media and Marketing in a Mobile 2.0 world

* Agustin Calvo, CEO, Movidream, Spain
Presentation: A Mobile Marketing Evolution to Contextual Interactivity and VRM.

* Christine Maxwell, Chief Information Architect, MobileWorks 3D Inc.
Presentation: Use of the Arts in Designing the Mobile World

* Ramu Sunkara, CEO, Qik (tbc)
Presentation: The Revolution Will Be Live Streamed: Live Mobile Video for the Masses.

A great lineup I would say and I am also looking forward very much to the lively discussions between all attendees during the coffee and lunch breaks and to the always stimulating and controversial Q&A sessions after the presentations.

Hope to see you there!
