Event Introduction
  The marriage of latest mobile technology and an evolving
healthcare demand drives the rapid market growth for mobile health.
Indeed, the revenues grow from $230 million in 2010 to $392 million
in 2015, according to research from Frost & Sullivan.
  However, this market is still in the very early stages. It has
been noted that the product development and commercialization are
facing the challenges of new regulations from the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA). But the upside to FDA involvement in the market
could prevent health apps from unwarranted medical claims, safety and
privacy concerns and even intellectual property violation.
  HYSTA Digital Health SIG and SVCWireless mHealth SIG have
invited  a group of subject-matter experts to present their
insights and advice about the challenges, and to discuss the possible
solutions for making a safe and robust healthcare system more cost
efficient. For more information, visit

HYSTA (Hua Yuan Science and Technology Association) aims to promote
entrepreneurship and career development among Chinese professionals
in Silicon Valley, and to facilitate networking and exchange of
business ideas among successful Chinese entrepreneurs and executives
in Silicon Valley and mainland China.

long-term economic growth? How can innovation policy effectively
promote entrepreneurship and stimulate innovation across the economic
spectrum?  With great honor, we have invited high level
executive from Intel as our keynote speaker, who will elaborate on
Intel Ultrabook, the new generation of laptop promises to be a game
changer. An elite list of distinguished executives from leading
companies of green energy, consumer electronics, touch screen, and
gesture recognition such as Cypress and JDS Uniphase will be our
conference speakers.  They will share their decade of experience
and visions on how technological innovation can continue empowering
future industry growth.  Please come and join us for this
enlightening event in Silicon Valley.   You will certainly
find it rewarding by learning and interacting with our distinguished
speakers and fellow professionals.
