TEDxCharlottesville, an independently organized conference affiliated with the internationally known TED Talks, will host a conference and series of speeches on innovation at the Paramount Theater this fall.

The conference will be simulcast at the Jefferson Theater. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 15, organizers said.

TEDxCharlottesville organizers said the event will feature video presentations of two TED Talks, and speeches by 16 live speakers.

Speakers include doctors, teachers, a long-distance runner and an environmental entrepreneur. More information on all of the speakers is available at TEDxCharlottesville.com.

The purpose of the event is "... to stimulate passionate local citizens to see their world and their community in extraordinary new ways," a release from TEDxCharlottesville said.

TED Talks originated in 1984 and were designed to spread and build innovation in technology, entertainment and design. Since then, they have evolved into a series of conferences and speeches around the world, the company's website said. TED is a nonprofit organization.

Tickets to the event at the Paramount will be $100, event organizers said. Tickets grant access to all speeches, both videotaped talks, dinner, a reception and a musical performance at the Jefferson Theater. A detailed schedule of events is not yet available.

Tickets to the broadcast of the event at the Jefferson will be available, but prices have not yet been set.
