Further to the earlier post about The IAP Spring Seminar for 2009, which is being held on Friday, 24th April 2009, at the Museum in the Docklands in London, the programme has been finalised with an interesting and exciting array of speakers.
Peter Green FIAP, the current Technical Director of The Telegraph Newspaper Group, will start proceedings by discussing the future of the newspaper publishing industry. He is well-placed to provide some insight into this topic, with over 25 years’ experience in the sector. He has been Operations Director at The International Herald Tribune and The European as well as IT Manager for the Press Association.
Professor Dominic Palmer-Brown, the Associate Dean of Computing and Technology at the University of East London will address the topic of designing Britain’s future in IT. Professor Palmer-Brown is widely published and holds the chair in Neural Computing at the University of East London.
Jim Goulding FIAP, once a producer/director of News at Ten, will continue the news publishing theme by plotting the course of IT development in the support and production of television news. He has worked for all the major TV companies in the United Kingdom and was in at the very beginning of Channel 4.
Ed Gibson, Microsoft’s Chief Security Adviser, will conclude proceedings by discussing current security threats. Ed Gibson is a former FBI special agent of twenty years’ standing and was attached to the US Embassy in London between 2000 and 2005.
