Plan now to attend the Distributed Computing Industry Association's inaugural P2P & CLOUD MEDIA SUMMIT.

This special DCIA event is scheduled for Thursday May 6th at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel.

The P2P & CLOUD MEDIA SUMMIT will explore current policy, technology, and content issues as well as next-generation business opportunities related to P2P and cloud based commercial offerings. A special session during the Conference Luncheon will feature a candid discussion on how to do business with leading media firms.

The DCIA P2P & CLOUD MEDIA SUMMIT is being held in conjunction with Digital Hollywood Spring, and your registration for the full DCIA Conference Package includes that event as well.

Digital Hollywood has become the industry's premier entertainment and technology conference and this spring's expanded line-up reflects current and new directions for applying digital innovation in the media sector.

If you cannot attend physically, there is also a very attractively-priced option to attend the P2P & CLOUD MEDIA SUMMIT virtually via live interactive webcast.

Keynote speakers for the May 6th DCIA P2P & CLOUD MEDIA SUMMIT will provide a strategic perspective on what is required to fulfill the multi-billion dollar revenue potential of the P2P and cloud computing distribution channel for entertainment content.

Our Conference Luncheon session will frankly address the "do's and dont's" for approaching major entertainment companies with new technology solutions. What are the absolute musts for a successful meeting? What are the most serious pitfalls to avoid?

DCIA Member speakers are listed in the Speakers section, which is below the Conference Agenda that immediately follows this summary. More speakers are being added.
