Citrix Synergy Attracts Tech Experts to the Ultimate Un-Conference, Geek Speak Live!
Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS), the global leader in application delivery infrastructure, today announced Geek Speak Live!, the ultimate un-conference at Citrix Synergy 2008 where tech experts, industry analysts and bloggers take the reins picking discussion topics and facilitating the sessions. Citrix Synergy, the all-new industry conference where virtualization, networking and application delivery meet, will take place May 20 to May 23 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.

Sponsored by Intel, Geek Speak Live! (GSL) is one of four industry events taking place at Citrix Synergy 2008. The other events include iForum User Conference, Application Delivery Industry Expo and IT 2.0 Business Symposium. GSL gives participants ultimate control, allowing them to drive the agenda and format of the event. Instead of watching traditional PowerPoint presentations, attendees will choose and vote on topics and lead group discussions. Rather than one-way lectures, GSL will feature a series of rapid-fire discussions led by widely recognized experts and thought leaders, both from Citrix and from the wider application delivery infrastructure community. Participants will meet other industry tech experts, analysts and bloggers with fresh viewpoints and compelling opinions about where technology is headed.

GSL will also feature a Gadget Lab where attendees can interact with a wide-range of technologies focused on application delivery. The lab will include graphically intensive, interactive software that will be delivered using application virtualization, as well as the latest small footprint portable devices, prototype devices from Intel and BYOG (bring your own gadget) where attendees can demonstrate their own gadgets and favorite tools.
