ForumOxford Future Technologies Conference 2010

ForumOxford Future Technologies Conference 2010

15 October 2010

This one-day conference will explore emerging technologies with an emphasis on Mobile / Web 2.0 innovations and applications.

Unlike many of the large impersonal conferences, this conference encourages discussion between the audience and speakers - we've allowed plenty of time for Q&A and also for further discussions of the conference topics during breaks and over lunch.
