This free, no-registration conference is a collaborative and world-wide community effort "to increase opportunities for globally-connecting education activities and initiatives.” There is no formal registration required and the sessions will be open and public. This is a worldwide conference on globally-connected education, not a "global conference on general education topics."
They will use the Elluminate platform and be broadcasting live. Sessions will also be available in archived formats later. You can view the sessions available online.
You can also follow Twitter posts during the conference with the hashtag #GlobalEd10.
