Title: Building Multi-threaded Mobile Applications 

Abstract: "Making an application multi-threaded is essential to give the user a smooth user interface.  This session looks at how
multiple threads can be used to keep data synchronised on a mobile device, while allowing the user to continue working. The session will
also cover the importance and the potential dangers of using multiple threads.  A threading framework will be covered as one way to overcome some of the shortcomings of the compact framework v1.0.
