Welcome to 19th Annual Conference & Exhibition of the Special Libraries Association - Arabian Gulf Chapter (SLA-AGC)

On behalf of the SLA – AGC Conference Committee I would like to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude to Ankabut and Masdar institute for sponsoring the 19th Annual Conference of the ALS Arabian Gulf Chapter.

The 19th Annual Conference will be organized in Abu Dhabi, UAE from 23-25 April, 2013, under title of “ the Future of Professional: Break the no longer traditional profession and tune in to the future of digital professional environment”.

The SLA conference represents the most important IT event in the GCC countries to be held every year for practitioners and academics in the Information domain. It will provide a great opportunity to discuss key issues and topics, facilitating communication and networking, and cooperation between them.

It is my own pleasure, and on-behalf of my colleagues in the High Organizing Committee, to be heartily welcome to attend the 19th SLA-AGC Conference events as we are highly appreciated your valuable participations.

I hope that success walks along with all participants, and I hope that the audiences get the most from this Conference.
