Welcome to Melbourne and the 2014 VALA Biennial Conference and Exhibition
VALA leads the way in helping us to use and understand information and communication technologies across libraries, galleries, museums and archives. It is dedicated to the exchange of best practice, innovation and research and helps to create and exchange new ideas within our growing knowledge economy.
The theme for this conference is ‘streaming with possibilities’ and over four days it will feature six international keynote speakers, 45 concurrent sessions, more than 100 exhibitors and much more.
While you are in Melbourne I encourage you to explore our city’s restaurants, bars and superb entertainment venues and art galleries. Our waterfront in particular has been transformed and the banks of the Yarra now offer great new cafes and bars together with tranquil walking paths. I’m sure you will enjoy our beautiful city and take back fond memories of your time here.
