Then you need to go to the FlashForward 2007 website.

Boston will host Flashforward 2007 September 19-21, 2007 . 3 days of "intensive education, inspiration, community, and networking. Live, breathe, eat, and sleep Flash®, Flex, ActionScript and Apollo. Learn how Flash integrates with other Adobe® applications to create Flash video, rich Internet applications in and out of the browser, animation, audio, games, data visualization, database integration, mashups, and much more." Flashforward is produced by lynda.com and sponsored by Adobe Systems.
