Traditional session control is not a sufficient solution in a multimedia services network, it must be renewed in order to handle multimedia and multi-user sessions. In this paper we address this issue and present a proposal for a solution, which we call Distributed Session Control (DiSC). DiSC can be seen both as an overall solution for session control in a network, and simply as a tool for creating complex multimedia sessions. One of the strengths of DiSC is that it does not dictate a new type of network architecture, but will operate on those already existing.
