The Last HOPE - July 18-20, 2008 - Hotel Pennsylvania - New York City

Additional Speakers Announced

Posted 6 June 2008 05:17:50 UTC

We are in full swing in the speaker selection and scheduling part of The Last HOPE. What follows is the next installment of our list of confirmed speakers and the presentations they will be giving at the conference. We have accepted many more and will be listing some of those in the next week. Since we've added a new track this year, we've been able to keep the submission process open rather late. But this will soon be coming to an end. June 15th is the absolute cutoff for speaker submissions. If you want to give a scheduled talk at The Last HOPE, you must submit it to by that date.

Here are some of the talks we're scheduling in addition to the initial list announced last week:
