The American Society for Indexing (ASI) is once again hosting their annual conference, this time in Seattle, Washington. This comprehensive event is scheduled for April 29-May 1, 2015 and is considered the primary source for information and education about indexing.
The state of the art of indexing and the publishing world is in constant flux, and keeping up with the evolution of the field requires lifelong learning. At the annual conferences, attendees can learn more about the best and most up-to-date advances in indexing as an information organization and retrieval resource.
In Seattle, just five minutes from the famous Pike Place Market, the ASI 2015 Conference can help you hone your technical skills with a plethora of software programs. The keynote speaker, Karen E. Fisher, professor at the University of Washington Information School will share her research on ethnic minorities and information access, algorithmic human relationships as an information problem, and the multiplex value of public libraries.
Not enough? In the extracurricular activity department, there will be a visit to “Underground Seattle,” a fascinating, historic tour of the city’s original first floor.
