Data in the Global Village: Stewardship of an Expanding Resource
 
The 17th annual conference of the International Association of
Social Science Information Service and Technology will be held at
the Hilton hotel in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, from Tuesday, May 14,
through Friday, May 17, 1991. The central conference theme expresses
IASSIST members' concern for managing and sharing computer-readable
data gathered on a wide range of issues facing our global community.
This theme also touches upon the need to care for and preserve an
ever-expanding volume of computer-readable data. The conference
program features workshops, contributed papers, and roundtable
discussions reflecting international viewpoints on these concerns.

the acquisition, processing, maintenance, and distribution of
computer-readable text and numeric social science data. Founded in
1974, the membership includes data librarians and archivists,
information specialists, social scientists, researchers,

Conference Location
 
The city of Edmonton lies in rolling parkland, a transitional region
between the open prairies and the Rocky Mountains. The resorts of
Banff, Jasper and Lake Louise are within an easy day trip, and in
mid-May are still open for skiing. (There will be a post-conference
excursion to Banff). Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta and
home of the University of Alberta, the Stanley Cup champion Oilers,
and of the West Edmonton Mall, the largest indoor shopping and
entertainment complex in the world. Come and join us in May for an
exciting IASSIST conference!
 
Special  Events
 
Entertainment activities planned for IASSIST '91 include a period
banquet at historic Fort Edmonton and a reception at West Edmonton
Mall which will provide an opportunity for conference attendees to
'shop until they drop'.
 
A post-conference retreat to the spectacular Rocky Mountain resort
of Banff is an optional excursion. Because this activity is
dependant upon a minimum number of participants, those conference
attendees wishing to attend this retreat must register before April
14. To reserve a space, enclose an additional $395 (single
occupancy) or $320 (twin occupancy) with your registration. These
fees will cover deluxe motor coach transportation to and from Banff,
two nights accommodation, and the services of a tour guide.
 
Transportation

International Airport are Air Canada, Canadian Airlines, Northwest
Orient, Delta Airlines, and American Airlines. Transportation
between the airport and the Edmonton Hilton is available from an
airporter service ($9.63) or taxi ($30.00). The Edmonton
International Airport is approximately 20 miles from downtown
Edmonton.

Rooms have been reserved at the Edmonton Hilton, the conference
site, at a special conference rate of $105.00 for a single room and
$115.00 for a double. These rates are guaranteed until April 13,
1991 only.

workshops only, and $100 for one-day attendance. Non-members should
add $50 to these fees. After April 14th, a late registration fee of
