The World Technology Summit & Awards 2009
July 15-16, 2009
TIME Conference Center, Time & Life Building, New York City
Convened by the World Technology Network in association with TIME magazine, NASDAQ, Fortune magazine, Mayo Clinic, Science magazine/AAAS, NY Academy of Sciences, and others.
On July 15th and 16th, 2009, at the TIME Conference Center in New York City, many of the most innovative people and organizations in the science and technology world came together for an historic gathering - the 2009 World Technology Summit & Awards, the eighth Summit and ninth Awards thus far! - to celebrate each other's accomplishments; to explore what is imminent, possible, and important in and around emerging technologies; and to create the kinds of serendipitous relationships that create the future.
The majority of Summit participants were either current WTN members (primarily winners/finalists from previous World Technology Awards cycles, as selected by their peers as those doing the innovative work of "the greatest likely long-term significance") or 2009 World Technology Award nominees. A combination of keynote talks, panel discussions, and breakout sessions... and potentially-career-altering-networking opportunities over two days concluded with a gala black-tie Awards ceremony on the second night.
