Real-Time Communications Conference gets Real

rtc_thumbIt is only a few weeks until this year’s IIT Real-Time Communications Conference kicks off in Chicago, IL at the Illinois Institute of Technology.

I think it is going to be a great conference.  Of course, I’m slightly biased as I helped organize it again this year as a co-chair of the WebRTC and Cloud Communications Track.  I’m also an adjunct professor at IIT – I remote teach a WebRTC class there, using WebRTC, of course!

Here are some of the highlights for me:

  • “The Future of Open Source Software in Telecom” panel, moderated by Andy Abramson on the first day of the conference, Tuesday October 6, 2015 at 1pm.
  • “What’s Next for WebRTC” panel, moderated by Chad Hart of webrtcHacks on October 6, 2015 at 4:30pm.
  • “Simple secure federated identity for WebRTC (your new phone number)”, a presentation by the always interesting Tim Panton on Wednesday October 7, 2015 at 9am.
  • WebRTC and Federated Identity Tutorials on the day before the conference, Monday October 5, 2015 from 9am – 5pm.  Dan Burnett and I will give the WebRTC tutorial in the morning, and Matthew Hodgson from will give the identity tutorial in the afternoon.
  • TADHack-2015TADHack Mini Hackathon, the weekend before the conference, October 3 – 4, 2015.  These are so much fun, and I can’t wait to see what people come up with, especially some of my students…  Who will win the $8k in prizes?  Kudos to Alan Quayle for organizing these incredibly creative events.

Besides these highlights, I always find interesting things in the other tracks, including:

And don’t forget a keynote by Henning Schulzrinne, of SIP and FCC fame, on “5G: What can we learn from the previous four generations?” on Thursday, October 8, 2015 at 11am.

Check out the impressive list of speakers at this years event.

Will I see you there?
