Welcome the DAMA-NCR//Wilshire Data Management Virtual Symposium!

The 2008 DAMA-NCR/Wilshire Virtual Symposium is a conference about enterprise information and data management which was delivered entirely in a webcast format. The conference is hosted by the National Capital Region Chapter of the Data Management Association (DAMA-NCR) and Wilshire Conferences.

The "virtual conference" is a concentrated series of webcast presentations which were scheduled live each day during the week of November 3-7, 2008. More than 700 participants from around the world attended the live conference. You can now download the archived sessions by following the instructions above.

The theme of this conference is “Leveraging Information Asset Management.”

The fee for attending the Symposium (either live or recorded) is $95. Discounts are available to DAMA members and some other affiliate groups; contact DAMA-NCR Chapter for discount information. All registrants are entitled to attend the entire 20 presentations (live or recorded).

Please be aware that all conference audio will be provided over the internet, so you will need a computer with audio output (ie. speakers or headphones) to hear the presentations.

We cover topics of interest to both private industry and government organizations at a variety of audience levels including business executive, entry level practitioner, and advanced practitioner.
