Organizers released the lineup for the third annual Seattle Interactive Conference. The event features a combination of presentations, panel discussions, and networking and social events.

This year's event is themed around "Transparency" with Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn delivering the opening remarks. McGinn will be joined by scientists, inventors, educators, and professionals from a number of influential companies.

One of the speakers, Matt Harding, gained international attention for his series of YouTube videos, "Where the Hell is Matt," that featured Harding dancing poorly in countries around the world.



Other speakers include Huffington Post's founding editor Roy Sekoff, AOL Digital Prophet David Shing, and James Whittaker who returned to Microsoft from Google.

Three programming tracks, "Digital," "Design," and "Develop" will feature more than 100 speakers and panelist.

The conference is set for October 28-30 at the Washington State Convention Center.

In addition, Microsoft, AT&T, and SIC are holding a pre-conference Hack-a-thon October 26-27.
