Fireside Chat with Jen-Hsun Huang at GPU Technology Conference 2009

At this year’s ECS we’ll have a “CEO on Stage” session, where a select group of start-up CEOs will have an opportunity to present their companies and interact with a panel of industry analysts, investors and technology leaders. CEOs will be selected by an advisory committee that includes Jon Peddie, president of Jon Peddie Research, and Drew Lanza, partner at Morgenthaler Ventures. If you’d like to participate in the “CEO on Stage,” submit your applications by Aug. 1. We’ll announce selected speakers by Sept. 15.

In addition to presentations from exciting new companies, ECS 2010 will feature several panel discussions. They include:

  • “Computer Vision on GPUs,” covering facial, gesture, human motion, and biometrics recognition; augmented reality; and robotic computing.
  • “Creating Businesses Through Disruptive Industry Changes,” featuring Morgenthaler Ventures and Silicon Valley Bank Venture Capital Group.
  • Also being held is a “fireside chat” with Jen-Hsun Huang, NVIDIA’s president and CEO, to be moderated by Quentin Hardy, national editor at Forbes magazine.
