IIFS is a new kind of event format for IFLA, focused on bringing the energy, expertise and rich diversity of our field together to find solutions to the information challenges facing us today and in the coming years.

We recognise that IFLA Members and volunteers are keen to use the opportunity of being together in Australia to meet, while our Australian colleagues will encourage their wider networks to be part of the Summit and be part of the IFLA environment. We are therefore including below details on IFLA-sponsored and non IFLA-sponsored Associated Events open to wider participation (seminars, workshops, mini-conferences, symposia, open business meetings, etc.).

IIFS Associated Events take place before or after the Summit and are open to participation by Summit delegates.
