Information Futures

6 - 8 February, 2002
Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre

VALA2002 is over, but Conference papers are now available from our Conference Programme and Index to Papers page.  Copies of the Proceedings may also be purchased - see Previous Conferences for details. 

VALA thanks all particpants in VALA2002 for making the Conference so successful. In particular, we thank the sponsors, the speakers, the exhibitors and, of course, the delegates - without any of these groups, there would be no Conference.
Link to KEYNOTE SPEAKERS Our list of keynote speakers was deliberately drawn from Asia, America, the U.K. and Europe, to provide a wide vision of evolving and emerging developments in libraries on the world stage. The speakers are experts in their areas of specialisation and were chosen because of their importance in working with major projects which were of significant interest to all conference delegates.
Link to CONFERENCE PROGRAMME The conference theme of e-volving Information Futures reflects the enormous influence that electronic information is having upon our current work environment, and the outcome has been a majority of papers discussing all aspects of the new e-learning and e-service environment. The extensive list of conference papers was tailored to include innovative projects and topics of current importance in the library and information technology fields.
The Trade Exhibition was one of the largest ever, giving delegates the opportunity to view the latest products and services being delivered by library and IT vendors.
The Conference Committee once again thanks all participants, and looks forward to welcoming you to VALA2004 from 3 to 5 February 2004 at the Melbourne Convention Centre.
