Other Information

The ICA Congress will be held in the southern hemisphere for the first time during August 2012. As host institution, the National Archives of Australia will welcome delegates to the city of Brisbane on the east coast of Australia.

Planning is underway to ensure that Australia 2012 will be a stimulating, informative and constructive event. The focus will be on sharing knowledge and experience and forging strong global partnerships that continue to thrive and produce tangible results over the years following the Congress.

The aim is to provide an environment that stimulates debate, encourages the exchange of ideas and experience and acknowledges the challenges that face all archives in the 21st century.

Brisbane will be an ideal setting for the Congress. August temperatures range from 22 to 26 degrees celsius (72–79 degrees farenheit) and there are major tourist attractions nearby for those who want to experience more of Australia during their visit.

The venue for the conference is Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. More information will be published as it becomes available. Until then, you can:
