Organized by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), the 15th Information Online Conference will take place in Sydney, Australia on February 1-3. This is the major conference event in Australia and only occurs every other year. It attracts a large number of attendees, primarily from Pacific Rim countries in Asia and Australasia and features not only a full range of presentations but also an exhibit hall and many networking events. An active blog is now underway with further information, and the program is also available.
Sydney is a long way from North America, but attending this conference is always well worth the effort (I speak from previous experience!). And as an added bonus for North American visitors–February is mid-summer in Sydney! If you have the opportunity, don’t miss it. And if you are there, please tell us your impressions in comments to this posting.
