The Application Store Phenomenon: Develop, Distribute and Profit from Mobile Apps ---- Co-Hosted by WCA & Sponsored by hiSoft
Until recently, wireless operators served as the gatekeepers of what content and applications made onto mobile phones. Now, mobile platform vendors such as Apple, Google, and Research In Motion are providing marketplaces where individual developers can promote applications they build specifically for each of these device platforms, while consumers can choose from thousands of applications tailored exactly for their needs. Even many believe that these events would shape up to be an interesting battle and might usher in a new paradigm shift for the mobile industry, quite a lot of questions still remain. In this panel discussion, we will not only discuss the state of App Stores but also analyze the impacts that App Stores have been bringing to carriers, consumers, mobile content providers, and device platform vendors.

China 3G: Embracing the Opportunities after a Long Wait  ---- Sponsored by VanceInfo
Triggered by Chinese government plans to grant licenses for 3G networks at the beginning of this year, operators in China have invested billions of dollars updating their infrastructure to support 3G. UNICOM has unveiled its 3G “Wo” strategy, and plans to bring the iPhone to China. China Telecom has attempted to surge ahead with its recently debuted eSurfing mobile services. China Mobile’s first Open Mobile System (OMS), dubbed as “Ophone”, is also expected to hit the market this year. With the world’s greater number of internet surfers and mobile phone subscribers, the demand for internet-based content via mobile devices is poised to explode in China. Now that the major carriers in China have platforms ready for solution providers to feed this demand, the discussion moves from whether or not there is an opportunity, to how do we catch this opportunity? In this panel, we will meet speakers with diverse backgrounds who are ready to share their China understanding.

Smart Grid: The Next Frontier of Mobile/Wireless EcoSystem ---- Co-hosted by US-China Green Energy Council & Sponsored by IBM
"Smart grid" is sweeping Silicon Valley as a revolutionary concept which will enable the transition to distributed, renewable energy sources, while transforming the way we conserve and manage the energy we consume. To make smart grid a reality, a robust communication infrastructure is essential, where wireless communication can play a critical role. At the edge, it will touch millions of families and billions of appliances and will drive energy conservation and consumption efficiency throughout the network. Given the scale and complexity of this challenge, a significant business opportunity is also knocking the door of the people who are prepared to capture it. In this panel, we will ask industrial, academic and innovation leaders to discuss:
Why is the current grid "dumb" and what needs to change?
What does the roadmap for these changes look like?
What role can wireless companies play in this game field? What's the business opportunity for them?
Andrew Clark Founder & Director, IBM Ventures
Erfan Ibrahim Technical Excutive, EPRI, Inc.
Judy Lin  Chief Product Officer, SilverSpring Networks
