The 2013 Australian Society of Archivists Inc. National Conference will be held in Canberra. Events will commence on the morning of Tuesday 15 October with Special Interest Group meetings. The Loris Williams Lecture and the ASA Annual General Meeting will be held in the afternoon at the National Film and Sound Archives (NFSA). The Conference proper will start with a Welcome Reception and the Mander Jones Awards at the NFSA on the evening of 15 October, followed by a 2 day program at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House. On the evening of Wednesday 16 October there will be a reception and launch of the Guide to Government Records about the ACT at Albert Hall. A series of ASA Workshops will be offered on Friday 18 October.
The conference structure is designed to encourage discussion through sessions where short papers are delivered by a number of speakers, followed by a moderated discussion between the panel and the audience. The theme Archives - The Future aims 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.
Registrations are now open and managed through the event booking tab above. Early bird closes on 31 August 2013. A draft program is available below.
We look forward to welcoming you to Canberra in October 2013.
