October 9 - 12, 1995, Chicago Marriott Hotel

Technological convergence offers controversy along with a host of prospects for access and management of information; not all outcomes may be positive. Electronic publications; new document management, production and dissemination technologies; encryption capabilities; intuitive interface design; and voice recognition capabilities can dramatically alter the traditional patterns of information flow. Will this technological convergence yield positive social impact?

The 1995 ASIS Annual Meeting will examine these critical, but too often overlooked, aspects of technological progress and convergence. It will attempt to provide information professionals with a critical vision of the future, looking toward designing positive, rather than accepting inevitable, outcomes.

For more than 50 years, the Association for Information Science (ASIS) has been the leader in keeping information professionals on the cutting-edge. ASIS provides high quality conference programs for information systems developers, online professionals, information resource managers, librarians, records managers, and others who "bridge the gap" between the present and the future, between research and application, and between developer and user. ASIS helps its 4000 members and its conference participants meet the challenges of today and prepare for tomorrow.
