Quality and Diversity of Topics on Wide Range of Key IT Subject Areas Better than Ever

TURNERSVILLE, N.J., Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Computer Measurement Group (CMG), a not-for-profit, worldwide organization of IT professionals specializing in performance, capacity and service management has finalized its Late Breaking Track for this year’s 37th International CMG conference (CMG’11) taking place December 5-9 at the Gaylord National Hotel in the Washington DC area.

The breadth of the material covered in these sessions is better than ever, with more session options. In addition to CMG’s normal sessions and panels, there are split sessions where two smaller presentations are covered in one hour as well as free-form poster sessions where attendees can see and discuss works-in-progress with the authors.

“It’s hard to believe that CMG’11 is less than a week away. In addition to the featured speakers and keynotes, we are adding an impressive list of ‘late breaking’ papers. These late breaking papers deal with technologies, methodologies, and timely information which have come about since the original paper deadline for CMG’11. It is meant to keep our conference attendees on the absolute cutting edge of what is transpiring in the industry,” said Tony Mungal, Marketing Director, for CMG.
