Got an email from these guys that this year the conference is being held in Hyderabad (surprise ) on 3-4 May (Link: http://bit.ly/yOyqHw). Have attended the GID Summit before but have no idea about this. Please share experiences (if any).
The focus would be on Java related technologies coming out of Oracle, lot of announcements regarding new releases, timelines for different Java SE, Java EE, Java ME releases. The session duration is a bit shorter and not much can be learnt apart from getting to know something exists.

Any of the conferences will not be of great help to newbies, though they can help you to know what's new! but you would have to be interested enough to go back and explore the technologies you have got to know of.
