The conference is being held in Washington, July 19 - 21
With tech innovations becoming a more integral part of
governance at all levels, some govvies may be wondering what "the next big
thing" is in the Gov 2.0 field. The upcoming FOSE Conference & Exposition
in Washington, DC
will explore these issues through a series of lectures and workshops this July.
The conference, being held July 19-21 at the Walter E.
Washington Convention Center, will serve "the federal, state and local
government technology market as well as the broader international and
commercial technology community as a forum for bridging ideas and innovations
between the public and private sector-and provides forward-looking view of
upcoming federal IT initiatives that impact the private sector."
Sessions will focus on subjects such as "Enabling the Mobile
Government Workforce" and "Next Generation Infrastructure Strategies." For the
social media minded attendees, the mobile government workforce track will focus
on issues such as "Using Mobile Technology to Engage the Public" and
"Enterprise Mobility - Finding the Right Balance."
Keynote Speakers at the conference include General James E.
Cartwright, Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, GSA Administrator Martha
Johnson, IBM Vice President of Software Research Dr. David McQueeney, and Apple
co-founder Steve Wozniak.
Additionally there will be a full floor expo, featuring
presentations and booths by dozens of companies such as FedEx and Dell Inc.
Registration is open to both government and industry professionals at several
different price points, including free admission to the expo, and can be found here.
