Rumors are circulating that Apple CEO Steve Jobs will make an appearance at a high-profile tech forum known as the D Conference in June.

News outlet Gawker reports that Jobs is likely to be a speaker at the conference, which is organized by the Wall Street Journal and is growing as a noteworthy technology summit.

This would be the first major public appearance at a non-Apple event for Jobs in years, signaling that he may finally be at full capacity after his numerous health problems.

Of course, Jobs has remained the figure at major Apple product debuts like the iPad, but his appearances at such events are highly scripted and usually brief. The D Conference will be a whole different ball game.

In 2007, Jobs sat in on roundtable discussions at the conference alongside Bill Gates, providing clips that continue to generate buzz on YouTube.

Jobs's appearance at this year's conference would be symbolic not only for him personally but for Apple in its entirety. The company has shifted dramatically since Jobs's last time at D, with more excitement than ever, but shifted away from what used to be its bread-and-butter Mac computer market.
