“Master” Your Knowledge of eDiscovery One More Time – In Our Nation’s Capital!: eDiscovery Trends

Back in May, I was excited and honored to moderate an enjoyable panel session in Chicago at The Masters Conference event there.  Then, we did it again in July in New York City.  Now, we’re doing it again later this month, this time in our nation’s capital, Washington DC!

The Masters Conference brings together leading experts and professionals from law firms, corporations and the bench to develop strategies, practices and resources for managing the information life cycle.  This one will be unique as The Masters Conference will be celebrating its 10th anniversary!  Like the other events, the Washington DC Conference will cover a wide range of topics from CEDS certification prep by ACEDS to the impact of social media and the Internet of Things (IoT) on eDiscovery risks and costs to case and project management and the meaning of cybersecurity to the legal community.

Unlike the other events, the DC event will be a two-day event, held on Tuesday, October 18 and Wednesday, October 19 at the Capital Hilton, 1001 16th St NW, Washington, DC 20036.  Registration begins at 7:30am on Tuesday, with sessions starting at 8:45am.  Sessions run all day Tuesday and Wednesday.

CloudNine will again be sponsoring a session, this time the session is titled 10 Years Forward, 10 Years Back: Automation in eDiscovery, which is the lunch panel at noon on Tuesday.  I am excited to be participating again with a tremendous panel: George Socha – Managing Director, BDO Consulting and Co-Founder of EDRM, David Horrigan – E-Discovery Counsel and Legal Content Director, kCura, Bill Dimm – CEO, Hot Neuron and Bill Speros – Evidence Consulting Attorney, Speros & Associates, LLC.  Mary Mack, Executive Director of ACEDS will be moderator of the session.

The unique session highlights the progress of eDiscovery technologies during the last decade and looks forward through the lens of innovation to the next ten years data discovery, including some of the world’s foremost authorities on eDiscovery who will be sharing their thoughts, considerations, and recommended best practices for the use of Technology-Assisted Review. The session format will allow each expert an opportunity to present followed by a short dialogue. Additionally, the conclusion of this expanded lunchtime session will recognize at a high-level the aggregate recommendations of this expert panel.

Click here to register for the conference.  The cost is only $165 for two full days of sessions – if you register by Tuesday, October 11; otherwise it’s $565(!).  There is also vendor pricing for attendance and having a booth at the conference.
