24ᵗʰ Annual Conference on Professional Information Resources

May 29-30, 2018, Prague

About Inforum Conference

The INFORUM conference focuses on electronic information resources and their professional use in science, research, education and business. It is a unique event of its kind in Central and Eastern Europe.

It is designed for librarians from academic and public libraries, managers, researchers, doctors, university teachers, ICT specialists, public administration employees, students, and other people interested in the issue. Since 2003, INFORUM has expanded its territorial focus from the Czech Republic and Slovakia to include other Central and Eastern European countries.

Background

The 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. The event moved from the Prague Exhibition Area to the freshly opened Vencovsky Aula of the University of Economics (former New auditorium). It also changed it's name to INFORUM at the same time.

Last year 420 participants were registered at INFORUM, 30 papers and 10 posters were delivered and 21 companies presented their products at the exhibition. Find more information about previous INFORUM conferences on the statistics page.
