James Cameron and Simpson creator Matt Groening to speak at Lavasa Conference

World’s acclaimed filmmaker James Cameron who has directed path breaking movies like Avatar, Titanic and Terminator 2, and cult cartoon
character Simpson’s creator Matt Groening is all set to address The INK Conference, in association with TED, scheduled for Dec 9-12, 2010 at Lavasa Hill City
near Mumbai.

The INK Conference (INK stands for Innovation and Knowledge) is an annual conference that aims to fuel innovation and foster knowledge by bringing together
the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers from a range of disciplines such as art, architecture, design, entertainment, entrepreneurship, sports and
technology.

The theme of this year’s INK is ‘Untold Stories’, and along with James and Matt the line-up of INK speakers include innovator Arvind Gupta, ‘New Scientist’
journalist and author of ‘The Edge of Physics’ Anil Ananthaswamy, Super 30 founder Anand Kumar, Lego innovator John Henry Harris, academic and author
Jennifer Aaker of Stanford, internationally-renowned product designer Philippe Starck, to name a few.

Lakshmi Pratury, co-host of TEDIndia, who also hosted TEDIndia 2009 in Mysore with Chris Anderson, Curator of TED Conference, said, “INK is unique because it
is not your regular conference with keynote speakers and an agenda. Our conference transcends different disciplines and topics. In short, there is a method
to the madness. We’re ensuring a cross pollination of ideas, where our highly curated audience and speakers have an opportunity to mingle,”

TEDIndia 2009 was attended by close to 1000 attendees from 46 different countries and celebrated the first-ever TED in Asia. This conference brought together
accomplished artists, architects, technologists, business people, musicians, dancers, scientists, and social entrepreneurs along with 100 young TEDIndia
Fellows.
