2008 CM Pros US Spring Summit Call for Proposals: Dynamic Delivery Across Multiple Media Channels

The CM Pros Spring Summit will be held June 17, 2008 at the Westin Market Street Hotel,
San Francisco, CA, in conjunction with Gilbane San Francisco

Submission Deadline: March 24, 2008

CM Pros is soliciting presentations that address the theme and empower the attendees with tangible and practical real world content management knowledge. Submit a proposal to present or lead a discussion that will provide attendees with strategic and tactical solutions for this unique aspect of content management. This conference is for anyone struggling with the business drivers and technical issues of managing and delivering dynamic content. We seek business and technical presentations that focus on "How To …", "Lessons Learned", or "Case Studies", and address any of the following topic areas as they relate to the theme and to content management in general:

  • Social Networking
    One of the fastest growing trends on the Internet has many companies wondering how they can benefit from this social phenomenon.
  • Web 2.0
    A nebulous and often over used term, yet many companies feel they must embrace Web 2.0 to remain competitive.
  • Rich Media
    The majority of US households have high-speed Internet connections so companies are using bandwidth intensive interfaces to deliver interactive content.
  • Content Re-use in Multiple Delivery Channels
    The utopia of all CMS implementations; create once, use anywhere. Simplistic in theory; yet complex in reality.

Submitting a Proposal
CM Pros welcomes submissions at all levels; many of the conference attendees are experts in their fields, while some are new to content management. Submissions must meet all the requirements. Incomplete submissions will not be reviewed. All sessions must be submitted in the requested abstract format and must be original work of professional quality.
