* The COMNET First: 30/60 Series is a series of presentations held on the exhibit floor, each offering 30 essential networking tips in just 60 minutes.

"COMNET has always had a strong reputation as an event that provides high-quality educational content to enterprise and government IT professionals," says Steven Taylor, president of Distributed Networking Associates and a COMNET advisory board member. "We have designed the program for COMNET '04 to build on the best from the past, while adding new elements to address the changing needs of the networking industry. Attendees will leave this event with a clearer picture of the top challenges facing this industry, as well as solutions they can put into place immediately."
