Only 33 days to go to the earlybird deadline of 30 November, so register
and pay *now* for VALA2012 and make your dollars go further.
The VALA2012 theme, eM-powering eFutures, promotes the understanding and
use of communication technology in libraries and the related museums,
archives and galleries sectors. VALA2012 looks to the future as our
presenters embrace technological change in their workplaces and
institutions, seeking ways to mobilise service delivery, and granting
service providers the skills and power to stay ahead of a connected and
socialised client base.
At VALA2012, be enlightened and challenged by our global keynote
speakers, be engaged by our presenters, share their journeys and
stories, and take away ideas to contribute to new paradigms. Over four
days, our international speakers, invited guests and peer-reviewed
papers will inform, challenge and inspire you. Our three-day exhibition
is one of the largest we have organised, providing the opportunity to
discover new solutions, revise old networks and create new partnerships.
Need a refresher or new to the industry? The L-Plate Series returns on
Monday 6 February to guide you through the jargon. For the technically
minded, the VALAtech Boot Camp sessions aim for hands-on-learning. Visit
the Showcase sessions for practical demonstrations of innovative current
practice. More details for all of these will be available on the
conference website soon.
