Topics will include "the cause and effect associated with uncontrolled electronic information growth especially in relation to the e-discovery process, and the current state of the art of information management technologies, again in relation to e-discovery requirements, [and] how categorization techniques can be used to defensibly and effectively manage and dispose of unneeded data," Recommind promises.
