This is the preliminary schedule for the 2019 International Future Computing Summit.  The topics and speakers are both subject to change without notice.  The goal of this schedule structure is to enable IFC Summit delegates to have a full grasp of what’s to come in the Client-to-Cloud Revolution, and to further enable prospective speakers and marketers to better determine how their expertise and insights can contribute to this exciting subject matter.  NOTE: Some speaker titles were abbreviated for better page formatting.

IFC Summit is reviewing speaker applications and there is some flexibility on subject matter provided it ties in well with future computing and/or the Client-to-Cloud Revolution.  Speakers must complete an application ASAP as decisions are getting finalized at an accelerated pace.

As further guidance, the first vision document for the Client-to-Cloud Revolution has been linked above.  This was co-written by Intel, Advanced Micro Devices, M2 Insights, Maychirch, and others and is under formal review and iterative discussion by The International Future Computing Association.  This is a great indicator for the level of discussion that delegates will benefit from at the IFC Summit, and is a strong tool for prospective speakers and marketers wishing to contribute to the summit’s content and experience.
