O konferenci

INFORUM (hence called "Infomedia") started in 1995 as the main side-event of BookWorld, the book fair in Prague, and was the first conference on professional information resources in the Czech Republic. Since then, it has grown five times. The event moved from Planetarium to the freshly opened New Auditorium at the University of Economics in 1999. It also changed it's name to INFORUM at the same time.

INFORUM 2000 attracted over 550 participants from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and abroad. They were presented with over 60 speeches and presentations and 24 exhibitors at the accompanying exhibition.
