President Obama is expected to meet with some of Silicon Valley's highest-profile executives tomorrow in San Francisco, including Apple's Steve Jobs, Google's Eric Schmidt, and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, according to an ABC News report.

The San Francisco Chronicle and CNET cousin KCBS (part of CBS Corp.) reported earlier this week that Obama would make an appearance somewhere in the area on Thursday for meetings with "business leaders in technology and innovation," but it's unclear whether any of the meetings or appearances will be open to the public or media.

Obama has paid visits to Silicon Valley before, having most recently attended a fund-raising dinner at the Palo Alto home of Google's Marisa Mayer and held a meeting with Jobs. Schmidt, meanwhile, is a member of the president's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.

In addition to his San Francisco stop, Obama is expected to visit Intel's massive chip manufacturing and research facilities just outside Portland, Ore., on Friday.
