Expert panelists are Helen Fawcett, Hans Fenstermacher, and Ben Martin, each representing a different approach to better content. Don DePalma from Common Sense Advisory will moderate the panel.

Hans will also be the moderator for a session entitled, "A Matter of Quality." This session focuses on how to measure the quality of localized content. Session B3
