IASSIST Annual Conference Program Planning Manual

The purpose of this Handbook is to assist those who will be responsible for developing the program of future IASSIST Annual Conferences. The information contained within has been put together by several individuals who have had experience running past conferences. While many things necessarily change from year to year, there is a surprising amount of continuity involving the decisions made and the deadlines set. It is hoped this manual can be continued as a living document, dynamically maintained by succeeding generations of conference program planners.  The Local Arrangments Committee (or LAC) has a separate set of responsibilities, and will have their own manual.  There will be occasions where information may be cross-referenced between both the Program Planning and Local Arrangements Manuals.
