Gilbane Conference on Content Technologies Washington D.C. to Provide Venue for Sharing Best Practices between Government and Industry.

June 5-6 Event Focused on Latest Techniques for Managing Enterprise Content; Call for Speakers due January 29(th)

WASHINGTON -- The Gilbane Group, Lighthouse Seminars and CMS Watch today announced that the second annual Gilbane Conference on Content Technologies Washington D.C. will take place at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington D.C. June 5-6, 2007. This is the industry's most comprehensive forum for bringing together both government and industry executives to share content management best practices. Information is available at:

The Gilbane Conference on Content Technologies will focus on concrete lessons learned and best practices for industry and government specialists alike. The Conference is chaired by Tony Byrne, founder of CMS Watch (, an authoritative, vendor-neutral source for comparative evaluations of content management and search technologies.

"Washington, DC is perhaps the most content-rich city on earth," said Byrne. "Among associations, non-profit organizations, publishing firms, consultancies, universities, and of course the federal government, we see enterprises generating much more digital content than they have systems today to adequately manage. This conference can help them get a much better handle on the problem."

Content technologies for managing documents, websites, and records have grown in utility and sophistication. New technologies can enable searchers to find and retrieve information on a scale unheard of just five years ago. In the meantime, emerging standards in industry and government are supporting greater content exchange and systems interoperability. By attending The Gilbane Conference on Content Technologies, attendees will learn about:

* Enterprise Content Management technologies, business applications, and solutions

* How to get your Content Management project funded

* Best practices in content governance and web operations management

* Content technologies and 508 compliance

* New standards in content interoperability

* Enterprise Architecture and Enterprise Content Management

* Latest Search and text-mining technologies: beyond the hype

* Comparative approaches for using XML to manage authoritative content

* How different enterprises have successfully implemented records management solutions

* What lessons can be drawn from hard experience

* Role of new media technologies - blogs, wikis, and RSS

* The future of web publishing

* How non-profits, associations, publishing, and other firms are managing growing volumes of content successfully.

"Gilbane Conferences draw attendees from a broad range of vertical industries and applications, which benefit from sharing strategies and proven practices, as they are all focused on managing information," said Frank Gilbane, Gilbane Group CEO, "Expertise and information exchange between government and industry is especially fruitful to both, and facilitating this is a main focus of our Washington conference."
