* Andrew Arch and Shadi Abou-Zahra, W3C will be presenting on the web and older people
* Henny Swan, Opera will be presenting on the mobile web
* Andrew Kirkpatrick, Adobe will be presenting on accessible RIA's with Flash, Flex and Air
* Michael Cooper, W3C will be presenting on WCAG 2.0 key concepts
* I will be presenting on standards issues across software and the web

There are also day pre-conference workshops on software accessibility and Web applications enabled with WCAG 2.0 and WAI-ARIA.
