The theme of this year's event, which will take place November 15-17 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, is "Points of Control: The Battle for the Network Economy."

Other confirmed presenters at the event include Carol Bartz, CEO of Yahoo!; Reed Hastings, CEO, president and chair of Netflix, Inc.; Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn; musician and producer will.i.am; and Evan Williams, CEO of Twitter, Inc.

"We're proud of the role that the Web 2.0 Summit plays each year in gathering leaders of the Internet Economy to debate and determine business strategy," says John Battelle, Web 2.0 Summit program chair. "Fifteen years and two recessions into the commercial Internet, it's clear that our industry has moved into a new competitive phase -- a 'middlegame' in the battle to dominate the Internet Economy. To understand this shift, the Web 2.0 Summit program will focus on the chess game in which all of these companies are now engaged, a battle to gain the upper hand."
