Consumer Device Management -- Industry Standards and Solutions
Abstract: Today, services and applications are being deployed on a wide range of devices. How to manage these devices is a concern to the service provider, application developer, and device manufacturer.  For example, deploying services to consumer electronics devices for residential applications, hand held devices for mobile applications and end user devices prevalent in today's corporate networks. This panel of leading standards organizations executives will discuss the architecture and remote management specifications and tools available today for device management. The panel will look at the current initiatives within each group, and set a baseline for what is already being accomplished in this arena. From this discussion, the picture will become clearer of where opportunities and obstacles still lurk. In addition, the vision beyond today's commercial requirements will emerge to frame a discussion of the next steps and possibilities inherent in new technologies under development. Our hope is that this frank discussion will help align the industry and provide a catalyst for future technology solutions.

Context Aware Mobile Services - Beyond Location Information
Abstract: Mobile services enjoy unprecedented popularity with an ever growing ecosystem of Mobile 2.0 applications entering the market daily. But in spite of this over-heated marketplace, voice is still the killer app in mobile services. The next generation of mobile applications begin to embed context aware functionality and in particular the new applications make use of location information to provide navigation and relevant search applications as well as some social networking and micro blogging capabilities. Capturing and understanding user context is key to offering personalized and relevant services. In the panel we will discuss emerging context aware services and some of the technical issues that are involve in capturing rich user context.
