Spanning the worlds of digital home, mobility, digital enterprise, and technology and research, IDF will focus on Intel Corporation's technology and platform roadmap directions for the next year and beyond.
"With Intel leading the technology industry's move to multi-core processors and the platforms they enable, IDF is the place to be for developers, technologists and business managers,? said Rob Chapman, IDF general manager. "Each of these audiences and several others will benefit from the content, networking, vision and strategy gained as Intel drives the next generation of multi-core platforms."
IDF will feature 120 training sessions and hands-on labs, along with a technology showcase where the latest innovations will be demonstrated by representatives from such communities as digital home, mobility, digital enterprise, technology and research, memory, storage and PCI Express.
