Coming Soon - May 7, 2008 Mobile Entertainment Media and Advertisement - The new face of Web 2.0.

The next generation of the Mobile Web - Web 2.0 - is expected to vastly expand the scope of media content generation and consumption by allowing one or more mobile internet users to singly or jointly create and consume content. Content continues to be the key driver of mobile applications with users generating and consuming content wherever they are - often in a collaborative fashion. Devices constantly increase in diversity and complexity making the task of rendering content and applications more difficult. The emergence of newer wireless technologies such as WiMax or UWB makes the job of transporting I.P. data over networks more challenging. Even though content owners have partnered with device manufacturers and network providers to simplify content creation and consumption, digital rights management continues to be a major challenge. Consumer-generated content - perhaps by way of a video generated on a mobile phone - is sometimes generating more eye-balls than traditional media content. All of this is resulting in significant challenges to the status-quo, the infrastructure, the existing business models and existing enterprises. Mobile Web 2.0 is expected to accelerate these developments even further. The forum will address such challenges arising as a result of Mobile Web 2.0 in the Convergence of Content, Devices and Networks for Consumer and Enterprise Spaces. The forum will bring together a panel of experts from Media/entertainment organizations, Content Aggregators, Network Providers, Infrastructure Organizations and Enterprises.
