The smartphone was just the start of the personal computing revolution. The next generation of open mobile and embedded systems connected to powerful cloud computing are poised to deliver a new wave of devices and services in our hands, homes, offices and cars. The first Tizen summit brings together leaders in the field to present the state of the art technology and thinking.

For the last 15 years open source has been driving innovation and changing our lives. Tizen is now at the front of the technological change driven by open source and is set to re-shape the mobile and embedded systems industries.

The first Tizen conference brings leaders from manufacturing, software integration, mobile carriers, and the community together to share their work, vision and ideas. During the two day conference the technology presentations and discussions cover:

  • - Tizen – Its past, future and the technology behind it.

  • - Mobile ecosystems.

  • - Cloud Computing.

  • - It’s more than just phones – IVI.

  • - HTML5 and App Development.

  • - Open source and licensing.

  • - Communities and collaborative software development.


Tizen as a project is only a few months old, but it is made up of a lot of mature software. The evolution from MeeGo to Tizen is small, but the addition of HTML5 to the MeeGo stack to make Tizen creates opportunities for everyone in the mobile ecosystem.

Cloud computing and fast networks are driving another big shift. No longer limited by the capabilities of the devices in our hand, cloud computing gives us complex and powerful services wherever we are. We look at the future of cloud computing in China and cloud computing in the mobile space.

As computing becomes more personal, more pervasive, it’s no longer just about mobile phones. Computing is moving into new categories, bringing sophisticated features to previously simple devices. IVI – In Vehicle Information – systems is just one area in which Tizen is bringing rapid development of more powerful devices. We have a discussion on the requirements for IVI and how Tizen meets them.

For years the goal of write-once-run-anywhere has been pursued in the mobile industry. Java and Flash are being pushed aside by HTML5, which promises to offer a better write-once-run-anywhere experience. We look at the forces driving HTML5 forward and discuss the differences between native applications and HTML5 apps.

Understanding Open Source licensing and IP issues can be confusing. We look at the licensing issues, the costs of open source software and some of the mistakes that have been made in the past and how they can be avoided in the future.

The key to successful open source is collaboration where everyone can participate freely both in the creation and use of the software. In the mobile and embedded systems there are a great many players working together who are set to benefit from the collaboration. The Tizen Summit brings together all the different people from across the industry including device manufacturers, mobile operators, software companies, and services and application developers enabling frank discussions about everybody’s needs, requirements, and vision. We discuss how everyone can work together to take Tizen to the next stage.


The Asian Tizen Summit is being held in Beijing from December 8-9. If you would like to attend please register. This first Tizen Summit is the start of a series of global Tizen summits where industry and community meet to discuss Tizen developments. This summit was organised by Nomovok and sponsored by Ixonos, Cybercom, and Nokia Qt.
