SXSW Adds Digital Convergence Panels

The Digital Convergence Initiative (DCI) announced it is organizing a conference track for SxSWi, the South by Southwest Interactive Festival, ground zero for the digital creatives who push the cutting edge of technological change, March 10-14, 2006, in Austin, Texas.

DCI's conference track features 12 panels between March 11 and March 14 addressing "Digital Convergence and Creativity" (March 11-12) and "Digital Convergence and Commerce" (March 13-14).

Aimed at the creators of content, inventors of technology, and the entrepreneurs and investors who create new businesses and industries, the panels explore digital convergence, a process that flattens and blurs the barriers between formerly discrete business sectors -- film, video, games, semiconductors, training, education, telecomm and wireless services, music, entertainment, healthcare and medical devices and services, computers and personal devices, home electronics, information technology, security, digital rights, advertising and mass media, and software development.
