Following the success of previous conferences held in London and Stratford The Joint Information Systems Committee and the Coalition for Networked Information are proud to announce the 4th International Conference, that will be held at the Edinburgh Marriott (formerly the Swallow Royal Scot) on 26th and 27th June.

The conference will bring together experts from both the United States and the United Kingdom with keynote addresses from speakers from OCLC, SCRAN and CNI.

Edinburgh is a world-leading centre for business, finance and education, and now home to the first Scottish Parliament in 300 years. Energy and excitement emanates from every corner of Edinburgh. Medieval buildings share the pavements with striking modern structures, centuries old craftsmanship rubs shoulders with cutting edge fashion and the peoples of the world mingle in the city's original pubs and contemporary restaurants to create a truly dynamic capital city. Edinburgh is an inspirational conference destination.

The Edinburgh Marriott (formerly the Swallow Royal Scot) is a smart modern hotel set in the suburbs of Edinburgh, close to the airport and approximately 20 minutes from the City Centre by taxi. The hotel boasts an excellent restaurant and superb leisure club with heated indoor pool, spa bath, sauna, steam room and fitness room. Bedrooms are well appointed and comfortable.


The conference will run from 26th June to 27th June 2002.
