SIIA To Host 'Innovation Incubator' Program at Annual Ed Tech Summit

The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industry, will celebrate its 25th anniversary at the 7th Ed Tech Industry Summit (ETIS), being held May 23 to 25 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. The organization's education division hosts the annual conference.

This year's conference will highlight best practices related to important industry-related topics such as: mobile learning, global opportunities, open education resources, online learning, the business of learning management systems (LMS), digital rights management, and market data.

In addition, ETIS will host the 2010 Innovation Incubator Program, which connects developers of new education technology with potential investors and companies seeking products for acquisition. The deadline to enter a product into the program is March 22.

And as always, conference attendees are invited to the annual CODiE Awards Reception and Gala, honoring the premier products and services for the ed tech industry. The presentation will take place the evening of May 24. For further information and registration, visit the CODiE Web page.
