Explosion of E-Resources - ASA Conference 2008 Rollo Turner 13 Nov 2007 12:31 UTC

Our regularly annual conference in February each year (25/26 Feb in 2008) is
once again upon us. As always, the programme is below but a somewhat easier
to absorb version is on our website along with
all the registration details, hotel accommodation etc.  In response your
enquiries and entreaties we have introduced a special 'early bird' discount
for registrations before the end of 2007 so book early and get even better
value than before! The conference is open to everyone whether you are
members of the ASA or not and I hope many of you will be able to come.
