Welcome! Karibu! Bienvenue! Ahlan wa Sahlan!
The 37th IAMSLIC Conference and the 5th AFRIAMSLIC Conference will be held in Zanzibar, Tanzania, on the 16th to 21st of October, 2011. We may be separated by geographic distances, many cultures and beliefs, but we will be brought together at this conference to share our knowledge and experiences.
Come and join your IAMSLIC colleagues for an exciting adventure of sharing and learning. We have chosen the theme of “Information Safari: Discovering and Sharing Resources”, and our speakers and presenters will dazzle you with presentations ranging from collecting and taming gray literature, marketing marine information, populating and utilizing the Aquatic Commons, to using new technologies to collect, share, and give access to an incredible array of resources.
The 5 days of meetings, workshops, presentations, and networking time, will start in an impressive welcome reception and end in a memorable banquet. There will also be exciting tours and time to explore the wonderful island of Zanzibar and beautiful parks in Tanzania such as the Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Mikumi just to mention a few.
You should not miss this meeting, it is a historic one, the first IAMSLIC meeting in Africa and our hosts will make sure that it is your most memorable meeting.
Looking forward to seeing you in Zanzibar!
