    .......................The Event............................
    Now in its sixth year, the annual Digital Money Forum will
    be two days of interactive discussion and debate from the
    centre of the digital money world.
    The Forum is not about technology or marketing: it is about
    the whole subject of the digitisation of money and the
    implications of that process for individuals, businesses
    and governments. A central theme of the sixth forum will be
    the resurgence of interest in new technologies for cash
    replacement: peer-to-peer electronic payment, contactless
    smart cards, mobile phones as mobile wallets and so on.
    Both speakers and delegates will be leaders in the field,
    looking at the evolution of retail electronic payments from
    the consumer, regulatory, bank, merchant, legal, sociological
    and other perspectives. With experts in financial systems,
    interactive TV, mobile commerce, mass transit, retail and
    related subjects gathered together, the Forum will continue
    to be the place to be for anyone who wants to understand
    Digital Money.
    Last year, the audience came from Europe, North America and
    the Far East to discuss topics ranging from the plans of
    banks and payment schemes and new European regulation to
    commodity and community currencies. This year, the subjects
    already on the agenda include the success of mass transit
    operators in replacing cash at points of sale to mobile
    payment schemes and from the digitisation of local exchange
    trading systems to electronic cash in developing countries.
