Hart, the former CIO for Clearwire (Nasdaq: CLWR) and Level 3 Communications (NYSE: LVLT), is expected to discuss the "Cox Conserves" program and strategies for reducing energy consumption. "He will also discuss other ways cable operators can change how their entire workforces, operations and outreach programs can reflect modern energy and sustainable thinking," SCTE said.

The SEMI Forum is scheduled to take place in Atlanta on April 10. The 2012 SEMI event was held in February in Philadelphia, and featured speakers from Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA).
