ACEDS April conference to spotlight role of predictive coding in evolving e-discovery landscape
PR Log - Feb 21, 2012 - Miami – The Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists will explore the transformative powers and accompanying risks of predictive coding on a panel at the upcoming ACEDS Conference. Michele C.S. Lange, director at Kroll Ontrack, Premier Sponsor, will conduct a complimentary 30-minute sneak preview of the panel on Thursday, February 23, at 1 pm EST. Visit http://www.ACEDS.org/sneakpeakpredictivecoding to register.

Predictive coding, also known as “computer assisted review,” is a powerful new technology that is rendering obsolete a generation of traditional keyword-based approaches to document review. Its advocates say it can drastically reduce the cost of large-scale projects while increasing accuracy. The technology is not without a learning curve, though, and its legal defensibility is still in question. Here, Lange, along with a kCura executive, US Government technology expert and the data analysis head of BDO Consulting, show you how to reap the benefits and avoid the pitfalls of this new frontier.  

The panel is part of a world class, three-day conference from April 2-4 at the Westin Diplomat in Hollywood, Florida. Nearly 30 experts on 17 cutting-edge panels will address e-discovery hot buttons, including preservation and management of electronic data in catastrophic cases, lawyer malpractice, social media and many others.

13 beachside networking events
The attendees will also benefit from 13 first-class networking events. They include two beachside receptions, three breakfasts, two luncheons and numerous refreshment breaks.

ACEDS, the two-year-old worldwide member organization, issues the world's first e-discovery certification, the Certified E-Discovery Specialist (CEDS) credential. It has members around the world and CEDS-certified professionals throughout the United States and countries as far away as South Korea and China.

ACEDS says knowledge not enough, networking a crucial plus
"We believe it is not only important to provide attendees with great knowledge, but equally important to extend great networking to expand the horizons of the attendees and the number of colleagues on whom they can call for help in addressing pressing job and career challenges," says ACEDS President Charles Intriago, a lawyer, former federal prosecutor and partner at a major law firm.

Conducted in its hallmark interactive fashion, the ACEDS format lets attendees pose questions directly to the speakers through expert moderators who orchestrate the panels and roam the conference floor while questioning the speakers themselves.

More than 50 service providers will be in Exhibition Hall
The conference also serves the needs of "shoppers" who are looking to buy e-discovery software and services. The Exhibition Hall will host 50 or more providers of services and software in the field, including Presenting Sponsor RenewData; Premier Sponsor Kroll Ontrack; Diamond Sponsor Deloitte and Platinum Sponsors Clearwell, Now a part of Symantec; Hogan Lovells; QuisLex and Robert Half Legal.

The conference offers up to 17 CLE, CPE credits, and CEDS credits for the growing number of CEDS-certified professionals who must keep up their continuing education.
