Cloud Expo 2011 New York Expands Technical Program

All-new "Telcos in the Cloud" track added to extensive existing selection of tracks

Due to a record increase in the number, quality and breadth of submissions to the Conference Advisory Board, the organizers of 8th Cloud Expo (June 6-9, 2011) - Cloud Expo New York 2011 - have extended the technical program through the addition of an all-new "Telcos in the Cloud" track - to complement the already extensive selection of tracks, including "Enterprise-Level Cloud Computing," "Federal/Government Cloud Computing," "Real-World Virtualization,"Cloud Security & Performance," "The Cloud in Practice: Case Studies," and the always-popular "Hot Topics" track.

Because the sheer quantity and quality of submitted sessions has outstripped the ability to assess each one fully and fairly - there have been a staggering 1,300 submissions thus far, for just 150 or so slots - the deadline for submitting speaking proposals to the conference is also being extended too, until January 31, 2011.



As always this extensive technical program will again be complemented by a significant supplementary program of Special Events, including Cloud Computing Bootcamp, CloudCamp @ CloudExpo, and the RightScale User Conference 2011.

Help plant your flag in the fast-expanding business opportunity that is The Cloud: submit your speaking proposal today!
