January 25, 2011 – The National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS) has announced the program for its 2011 Annual Conference. The event is scheduled for February 27 – March 1, 2011 at the Hyatt at the Bellevue in Philadelphia, PA.

Knowledge Speak brought this event to our attention in their post, ‘NFAIS meeting to discuss means to handle vast amount of digital information.” The three-day meeting will look at how publishers and librarians are navigating the exponential growth of digital information to provide scholars and researchers with reliable, relevant information, regardless of the source. Practical approaches will be discussed along with emerging technologies that hold promise for the future, such as augmented reality, machine thinking, semantic search, cloud computing and automated translations.
