[Hmm... is this an Intel boondoggle, shallow as TED, or a real ACM
event? ... RK]

>Computing, not computers will characterize the next era of the
>computer age. The critical focus in the very near future will be on
>ubiquitous access to pervasive and largely invisible computing
>resources. A continuum of information processing devices ranging
>from microscopic embedded devices to giant server farms will be
>woven together with a communication fabric that integrates all of
>today's networks with networks of the future. Adaptive software will
>be self-organizing, self-configuring, robust and renewable. At every
>level and in every conceivable environment, computing will be fully
>integrated with our daily lives.

>Each of the invited participants to this conference can actively
>participate in defining this new era through the use of interactive
>meeting technology.
