    * Four days of conference events on key ICT developments


Léo Apotheker from SAP will be there, rubbing shoulders with Microsoft's B. Kevin Turner, Marco Boerries from Yahoo and Craig R. Barett from Intel. Reid Hoffman from LinkedIn and Dr. Stefan Groß-Selbeck from Xing will join them. All these experts are keynote speakers at this year's CeBIT Global Conferences, which will prove to be the international summit of the ICT sector.

Topical issues such as the role of ICT in shaping the society of the future or how the Internet can inspire and drive modern societies to greater things will be addressed at CeBIT 2009 (3 - 8 March). The CeBIT Global Conferences, in particular, will focus on key issues and provide a platform for innovation, discussion and knowledge transfer.

Taking place for the second consecutive year, the CeBIT Global Conferences will run for four days (3 - 6 March). Key international figures from the ICT sector will offer their predictions and visions regarding the future of the information economy, telecommunications and the new media. The conference language is English.

Broad spectrum of topics

'The program of the CeBIT Global Conferences covers an enormous range of topics of relevance to both decision-makers in the ICT industry and companies using ICT, as well as people interested in the socio-political aspects,' says Ernst Raue, member of the Board at Deutsche Messe in charge of CeBIT. Raue adds: 'The list of top speakers represents a unique constellation and sets an exceptionally high standard for ICT conferences.'

The list of participants also includes Joel Berger (MySpace), Dana Dunne (AOL Europe), Scott A. Durchslag (Skype), Martin Jetter (IBM), Walter Deppeler (Acer), Som Mittal (Nass-com), Ben Verwaayen (Alcatel-Lucent), Dr. Werner Vogels (Amazon.com), Dr. Sven Lorenz (Porsche AG), Andy Mulholland (Capgemini), Stephan Musikant (Ciao), Dr. Reinhard Ploss (Operations Infineon Technologies AG), Jean-Laurent Poitou (Accenture), Prof. August-Wilhelm Scheer (BITKOM), Karl-Heinz Streibich (Software AG), Enrique Tufet-Opi (Epson Europe), Kevin Eyres (LinkedIn), Thorsten Dirks (E-Plus), Prof. Dr. Hans-Gert Pöttering (President European Parliament), the Honorable Stephen Conroy (Australian Senator), Teri Takai (CIO California) and Dr. Hans-Bernhard Beus (CIO Germany).

On the first day (Tuesday) the CeBIT Global Conferences, housed in Hall 2 of the Convention Center on the CeBIT showgrounds, will focus on global issues related to ICT - and provide relevant answers.  On the next day of the show (Wednesday) the discussions will center on the increasing mobility of communications. The third day of the conference program (Thursday) is devoted to the keynote theme 'Business 2015', while the fourth and final day addresses a major theme being featured at CeBIT 2009 -Webciety, i.e. the social implications of the web for society.


High-caliber delegate from California as CeBIT's Partner State


Teri Takai, Chief Information Officer of California and member of the Cabinet of Governor Schwarzenegger, will be taking part in the discussion session on  'ICT and Civil Society'. The President of the European Parliament, Prof. Dr. Hans-Gert Pöttering, will open the CeBIT Global Conferences.

 BITKOM President August-Wilhelm Scheer will comment on the speeches held on the first day - for example, by B. Kevin Turner, COO Microsoft, Ben Verwaayen, CEO Alcatel-Lucent and Craig R. Barrett, Chairman of the Board, Intel Corporation.


New opportunities created by increasing mobility


Walter Deppeler, Senior Corporate Vice President of the Acer Group - currently the third biggest PC supplier and the second largest manufacturer in the Notebook segment - is one of the leading keynote speakers on the second day of the Global Conferences.

In the context of the general topic 'Mobile Communication, Media & Entertainment' Deppeler will outline how the identity of the consumer in the 21st century will be affected by the increasing importance of mobile end equipment. This same theme will also be addressed by Dana Dunne, who was named the new Chief Executive Officer of AOL Europe in February 2007, and by Scott A. Durchslag, COO from Skype.


Industry bosses highlight strategies for dealing with difficult times


On the third day of the conference a top-flight panel of experts comprising Karl-Heinz Streibich, CEO Software AG, Dr. Sven Lorenz, Director of Information Systems at Porsche AG, Dr. Reinhard Ploß, from the Management Board of Operations Infineon Technologies AG, Jean-Laurent Poitou, Managing Director of Accenture and Enrique Tufet-Opi, Vice-President of Epson Europe, will deliberate on business prospects and the potential of ICT technologies in a session entitled 'Business 2015'.

Speakers Andy Mulholland, Global Chief Technology Officer at Capgemini, and Martin Jetter, General Manager of IBM Deutschland, will present various options and solutions.


Chief 'Webciety' players at the Global Conferences


At the conclusion of the CeBIT Global Conferences, speakers will be addressing Web 2.0 technology as the driving force behind what is known as the 'Webciety' - the permeation of web-based technology in every aspect of society. Reid Hoffman, Chairman and President of the Products Division at LinkedIn, Marco Boerries, who is responsible for the worldwide Yahoo! Connected Life Division, and Werner Vogels, CTO of Amazon.com, will share their views of the Webciety.

There will also be a panel discussion involving Kevin Eyres, Managing Director Europe LinkedIn, Stephan Musikant, Managing Director Ciao GmbH, and Joel Berger, Managing Director MySpace GSA & Northern Europe.


Presentation of 'Convergators of the Year'


The achievements of key players on the international marketplace who have spearheaded the convergence of different technologies, particularly on the German market, will be honored at CeBIT Global Conferences with the 2009 Convergators' Awards. At the award ceremony prizes will be presented in each of the four categories Digital Life, Mobile Content, Health & Traffic and Marketing & Cross Media.

The 'Convergators of the Year' event to be held during CeBIT on 4 March features an exciting supporting program. Together with a laudatory speech presented by the charismatic and prominent Prof. Dr. Helmut Thoma, founder of the RTL television company and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Freenet/Debitel, this affords a perfect opportunity for networking in a pleasant atmosphere.
