This conference will provide attendees with practical information on the current state of flash memory and its applications. Summit themes include Using Flash Storage in Consumer Applications, Flash as a Disk Replacement and Flash as Nonvolatile Rugged Memory. The program consists of tutorials, panel discussions, keynotes, paper sessions, workshops and special sessions.

Flash Memory is a type of nonvolatile memory that can be erased and rewritten in units called blocks. Flash is rugged, small, low-cost, low-power, and fast. It allows for compact systems with simple startup and low power consumption. It is ideal for consumer applications such as cellphones, digital cameras and music players, and is also useful in computers, communications systems and military/defense applications. It can replace hard disks for storage in applications where its higher cost is balanced by its smaller size, greater ruggedness, and lower power consumption.
