Davin Huston, Ellen Juhlin, Christopher Plummer and I are doing three networking sessions for the Sound Commission at USITT in Milwaukee next month, and we need your help! 

Here's the session descriptions:

Introduction to Networks
Saturday, 03/23/2013 11:00AM-12:30PM
Delta Center 102D
Description: This session is the first step in learning how to cope with and setup networks. This hands-on session is aimed at guiding users through the setup of a basic network. Participants should bring their laptop to follow along with the examples.
Issues in Audio Networks
Saturday, 03/23/2013 2:00PM-3:15PM
Delta Center 102D
Description:Join John Huntington, author of Show Networks & Control Systems, Ellen Juhlin, D-Mitri digital audio platform manager at Meyer Sound, and Davin Huston, Sound System Designer and certified network professional, to discuss issues that can arise when using audio networks. This session will help show problems, solutions, and caveats in audio networking and share information on where the audio network industry is heading.
Audio Network Troubleshooting
Saturday, 03/23/2013 3:30PM-4:45PM
Room Delta Center 102D
Description: This session is a hands-on opportunity for audio people to experience setting up a network from scratch. This is an attendee's chance to apply what they have learned in 'Introduction to Networking' and 'Issues in Audio Networks'. Participants should bring their laptops to follow along with the examples. It is helpful but not necessary to have attended the earlier Introduction to Networking workshop.

For the last two sessions, we'd like to hear from you about what you'd like us to discuss. What's the most common networking problem you've seen?  Have you been stumped by a networking issue? Had word clock problems? Have you had a glitch during a show? If you answered yes to any of these things, please use my contact form (link at left) to let us know before March 7 at 5pm NYC time! (We need some lead time to make sure we are equipped to answer the questions)
