ICDL 2016

Smart Future: Knowledge Trends that will Change the World is the theme at the 2016 International Conference on Digital Libraries (ICDL).

Smart Future is about understanding, visualizing, and exploring the possible scenarios of the future today, to be able to better prepare ourselves. This will help us to design the future based on set goals. Better preparation for the future enables us to alter the direction of an entire marketplace, field, or to prepare industry or prepare for the outcome. It is also possible to make greater impact in the future through present actions.

Smart Future will not only create a roadmap to guide us through what is coming next, but also tell us how to prepare ourselves for new challenges and opportunities. It will suggest how to manage the key trends to improve our life in future.

IFLA President Donna Scheeder will deliver the Keynote address.
