NEW DELHI: Mumbai, for the first time will host the third Intel Developer Forum conference (IDF), a technology conference for hardware and software developers, for the first time.

The event, themed "Advancing the Digital Universe" would be held on October 29. Key focus of this IDF conference will be on hardware and software development, addressing topics involving the latest technologies and products in enterprise, wired and wireless networks, and handheld communications devices. Previous IDF conferences, in fall 2001 and last spring were held in Bangalore.

The event will start with keynotes from Intel's top executives providing vision and technology direction. Speakers from Intel include Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Pat Gelsinger, Vice President and General Manager of Enterprise Platform Group, Abhi Talwalkar, and Vice President, General Manager of Network Processing Group, Tom Franz. Fifteen technical sessions will also be held later in the day on the following three areas: Architecture for the Enterprise, Software and Solutions and Communication and Wireless.

"IDF is a window opening up to technology advancement. Mumbai, being the commercial capital of India, has immense potential for technology advancement for business. This is a major reason why Intel is bringing IDF to Mumbai for the first time. Developers and businesses alike are constantly looking for global information to extend their technology horizons, and IDF seeks to provide them an update in the world's most advanced technologies," said Intel Asia Electronics, director for South Asia, Avtar Saini. The US version of IDF Fall 2002 was held in September in the San Francisco area.
