Real World VoiceXML Track

One of the things that we learned from our first conference (in March of 2002) is that a lot of attendees wanted to discuss and see case studies in which real world companies have utilized VoiceXML and developed interesting applications using the technology. In the Real World VoiceXML Track, our objective is exactly that. We start with adiscussion on how SIs and Services Providers can collaborate and providespecialized services and new business models using the flexibility provided byan open standard--VoiceXML.

We continue with case studies about the usage of VoiceXML in the transportationindustry where the technology provided unique benefits to its developers andusers. After lunch, the conference presents a rapid fire "VoiceXML Live!Demo hour" session, an opportunity to allow different presenters to showoff their VoiceXML-based applications. The theme that revolves around the innovative use of VoiceXML continues during the day with a discussion on how VoiceXML was utilizedby radio stations in answering their calls. 

Finally, if you are sitting on an idea for a great application where speechcan be utilized in your organization, but need a push to start that firstproject, the "Lessons  Learned from Your First VoiceXML Project"session is well suited for you to give that push. Discuss and take back first handtips from someone who already took that leap and is ready to discuss the experience withyou.
