It was the best IASSIST ever!

Until next year of course!

This year's conference is done and Anastassia, Susan, and the wonderful Local arrangement folks at McGill are probably breathing a sigh of relief! Lots of informations was presented and some of it was absorbed! More will likely be reviewed over coming weeks preceded by the usual "Now I know I saw a presentation about this at IASSIST...."

If you were one of those fine presenters, please don't forget to submit a paper to the IQ (instructions for doing so are on the IASSIST website). Also, we want to make sure that your presentation itself is captured for prosperity so please check with Lisa Neidert (lisan at to make sure we have a copy.

I'll be posting planning info here as the months progress so stay tuned. Let me know if you want to be part of the planning committee. Otherwise, think about the possibilities for:
