The program will bring together publishers, librarians, and 
technology developers representing all market sectors from around 
the globe to discuss how they are responding to the daunting 
challenge of identifying, acquiring, processing, transmitting, and 
storing incredible amounts of digital content across all media and 
across a growing amount of foreign languages - a challenge that will 
continue into the foreseeable future as the volume of information 
continues to escalate. Practical approaches currently being 
implemented will be discussed along with emerging technologies that 
hold promise for the future such as augmented reality, machine 
thinking, semantic search, cloud computing, automated translations 
and more.
