May 15: next08, Hamburg
next08 is on May 15, 2008 at the Prototyp museum in Hamburg. The main theme will be “get realtime”, taking care of the challenge that customers are communicating in real-time but companies do not. Together with DLD in Munich it has become Germany’s most important New Media event. Confirmed speakers as include Anil Hansjee (Google), JP Rangaswami (British Telecom) and Lisa Sounio (Dopplr).

May 21st: Startup 2.0, Barcelona
StartUp2.0 is a competition of European web 2.0 sites whose objectives are to promote and reward the European startups that work in the field of “2.0” technologies.

21-23 May: Thinking Digital
The Thinking Digital conference will take on an eclectic range of technology-based topics that have (or soon will have) a profound effect upon the way we work and live: from the future of media and making far better use of technology, to our obsession with happiness and creating a cure for ageing.

Jun 10: Being-Digital
Being-Digital is a UK event, in London for UK entrepreneurs, executives, and investors. A number of startups will be pitching on the day (interest declared: I’ll be introducing them). The bulk of the speakers, demo companies etc. are UK based, such as Brent Hoberman of mydeco, but will also feature Loïc Le Meur, founder of Seesmic. The interesting thing about the pitches is that they will be filmed, and made available afterwards, with the winning company announced on June 19th.

    Hi, Just to mention that Cambridge University Technology and Enterprise Club (CUTEC) will celebrate a conference in Cambridge (University Arms) next 12th June, and will feature keynote speakers Garret Camp (co-founder & chief product officer, StumbleUpon), Michael Liebreich (founder & CEO, New Energy Finance) and Peter Hartzbech (co-founder & CEO, iMotions) and 3 stimulating panel discussions: ‘The Future of Biofuels’, ‘Personalised Medicine’ and ‘What’s beyond Web 2.0’. The conference also includes a showcase session of the latest technologies in the respective areas by companies requesting to take part.
    I think is worth checking the venue at: http://www.cutec.org/
