2013 Conference

The 28th National Conference was held in Canberra from the 15 - 18 October 2013. The conference commenced with Special Interest Group meetings, followed by the Loris Williams Lecture and the ASA Annual General Meeting at the National Film and Sound Archives. The Conference proper started with a Welcome Reception and the Mander Jones Awards, followed by a 2 day program at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House. On the evening of Wednesday 16 October there was a reception and launch of the Guide to Government Records about the ACT at Albert Hall and on Friday there were 3 workshops conducted. The conference was designed to encourage discussion through sessions where short papers were delivered by a number of speakers, followed by a moderated discussion between the panel and the audience. The theme Archives - The Future aimed to complement both the significance of Canberra’s centenary in 2013 and the current attention within the recordkeeping community on reinventing archival methods to meet the demands of the digital age.
