My MobileLab research group at the university has been invited to present its work in the Mobile Connections: The Next Great Ideas? Panel, co-hosted by Tech Crunch, at the Supernova 2008 conference in San Francisco on Monday June 16.

Our work will be presented with several others whose ideas were selected because they represent “game-changing innovations that provide a glimpse of the wireless future”.

I will talk about our augmented reality work with Texas Instruments and Ericsson.
