Next week, the Bay Area will host eComm America 2010, a 3-day conference founded by Lee S. Dryburgh, a telecommunications engineer and communications visionary who sought to create a forum where new thinking in the fields of telecom, mobile and internet communications can all occur in one place.

In 2008, the inaugural eComm event drew 300 people at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. In 2009, it was also exported to Europe . This year's event, which will kick off on Monday, April 19th, will be held at the San Francisco Airport Marriott.

With about 80 speakers confirmed, the high speaker to attendee ratio of this event should make for a intimate and productive gathering. The sessions topics look promising and many resemble what you would expect from (now defunct) ETech rather than a typical telecom conference. For instance, the third day is exclusively focused on augmented reality.

Below are a few example sessions planned at next week's eComm:
