Invitation to South Australia
On behalf of the Conference Organising Committee, I am very pleased to invite you to the 10th Asia Pacific Special, Health and Law Librarians' Conference.
This year, the Conference returns to South Australia, and will be held in the newly extended Adelaide Convention Centre. Known as the city of food and wine, Adelaide offers the buzz, culture and convenience of a capital city combined with a relaxed Mediterranean climate.
The theme of the Conference 'celebrate the future' invites you to embrace the challenges and opportunities provided by the fast moving technologies with which we all work. We have a full programme of sessions, with excellent keynote speakers and speakers from most states in Australia and some nearby countries. We have also included time for library tours.
We're delighted to have the support of so many sponsors and we welcome the trade exhibitors to the conference, some of whom will conduct vendor presentations during the lunch breaks.
Our 'celebrate' theme is reflected in the social programme which we feel is a major part of the networking and 'catching up' during the conference. The opening reception on Sunday night and the informal reception at the South Australian Museum on Monday night are included in the full registration. Attendance at the Conference Dinner on Tuesday night is also included in full registration, as we feel that the dinner is one of the key opportunities for us all to get together during the conference.
There are a number of satellite events both before and after the conference. These have been arranged independently of the conference. To attend these, you'll need to register with them separately. Don't forget that the Kinetica Annual User Meeting will be held in Adelaide in the week preceding our conference. If you're attending both, it will give you the weekend to enjoy Adelaide's many attractions, including the nearby wine regions both north and south.
To ensure that the conference is as affordable as possible, we've not raised the fees from those charged for the 9th conference in Melbourne in 2001.
Please join us at the conference in August and stay on to enjoy your visit to Adelaide. We all look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones.
