The theme for the Conference is The New Age Archivist: Managing Archives in a Digital World. The Programme includes presentations on applications of archival theory to the digital world, processing of digital archives, social media and the web, cloud computing and archives, dealing with different forms of digital records, documenting archival context, and authenticity.

We hope to see you in beautiful Barbados in June.
