See the Future of User Interfaces at the IHS Interactive Technology Summit

IHS Interactive Technology Summit, to be held from Oct. 22 through Oct. 25, 2013 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, Calif.

El Segundo, Calif. (Aug. 20, 2013) - Revolutionary changes in intelligent sensors, gesture recognition, touch screens and advanced displays are reshaping the way humans interact with machines.


To help players in the technology value chain get ahead of these transformative developments, IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS) is pleased to announce the IHS Interactive Technology Summit, to be held from Oct. 22 through Oct. 25, 2013 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, Calif. Formerly known as the Touch Gesture Motion Conference, the event brings together top executives with leading industry experts to chart the ongoing revolution in user interfaces.

Keynote speakers will include:

*Candice H. Brown Elliott, chief executive officer of Nouvoyance, an independent fabless semiconductor firm and the developer of PenTile color display technology.

*Joe Kane, founder of Joe Kane Productions, a specialist in the science of electronic imaging and the accurate reproduction of video signals on display devices.

*Kevin Shaw, an engineer and company executive who has been pushing the limits of sensor technology for more than 20 years, with companies including Kionix, Calient Optical Components and Ironwood Technologies.

*Ge Wang, an assistant professor at Stanford University in the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). His research encompasses programming languages, interactive software systems for music, visualization, human-computer interaction, sound synthesis and education.

The first day of the event, entitled "Intelligent Sensors," will examine interactive displays, both direct touch and gesture/motion-based solutions, requiring sensor silicon that is rapidly enabling new and unique capabilities that are smaller, more powerful and more highly integrated.

The second day, dubbed "Touch Gesture Motion: Enhancing Interactivity," will analyze the rapid emergence of interactive displays-i.e., technologies that link the human-to-machine interaction beyond the visual realm.

Day three, called "Touch Gesture Motion: Advanced Touch Solutions", will cover technologies that enable both pen and touch, haptic feedback and enhanced tactile response. These quickly emerging technologies are proving capable of allowing much more natural touch experiences.

On the final day of the event, titled "High-Performance Displays: Next-Generation Visualization," event participants will discuss advanced displays, including high resolution, 3-D, high color, high contrast, high frame rates and wide aspect ratio.

Registration fees range from $650 for one day to $2,400 for four days. The early registration discount for a four-day pass expires Sept. 13. For more information on registration, please visit http://ihsglobalevents.com/its2013/fees-registration/
