CSR plc (LSE: CSR)(NASDAQ: CSRE) today announced, together with the Telecom Council of Silicon Valley, the speaker line-up and agenda for its sixth annual Locations & Beyond Summit to be held Tuesday, December 11, 2012, at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Palo Alto, California. Joep van Beurden, CEO of CSR, will provide the fireside chat, while Andreas Winckler, senior advanced technology engineer at BMW Group will deliver the keynote address.
The Summit, this year called "Locations & Beyond: Mobile Forum,” is designed to convene top experts in location and connectivity to explore the topics of indoor location and resulting use cases, as well as CSR’s Location-as-a-Service (LaaS) roadmap. The agenda, speaker details, and additional information are available at www.locationsandbeyond.net; here is the line-up at a glance:
“Our industry has really only tapped the surface in delivering indoor location technology and the resulting applications,” according to Dr. Steven D. Gray, chief technology officer for CSR. “There's far more to be done to increase precision and deliver new classes of devices, platforms, and services in order to provide offerings that are beneficial to both consumers and businesses. At this year’s summit, we will seek to help chart a course for organisations wishing to tap this enormous potential.”
This year, CSR is offering a product showcase event for companies in the location industry wishing to demonstrate their products at the Summit; a limited number of spaces are still available. Sponsorship information is available at www.locationsandbeyond.net
