Event held under the theme ‘The Internet of Things: The Future of Connected Internet Societies’

Abu Dhabi, 28 February 2019:  The Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) is set to host the 25th annual Special Libraries Association - Arabian Gulf Chapter (SLA-AGC) Conference & Exhibition, under the theme ‘The Internet of Things: The Future of Connected Internet Societies’, from 5 - 7 March at the Dusit Thani Hotel, Abu Dhabi.
 
The annual conference is a platform for experts, exhibitors, professionals, companies, and other stakeholders in the library sector to exchange ideas and best practices, and discuss future challenges facing the sector in the age of technology.

The conference will also tackle key topics including ‘Information Security’, ‘Privacy’, ‘Legislations and Regulations’, ‘Application’, ‘Knowledge Management’ and ‘Standards’. 

The ‘Information Security’ session will cover data confidentiality, verification, controlled access, and the role of technical and operational standards in developing and setting safe Internet of Things (IoT) devices while ‘Privacy’ will address the adoption and localisation of IoT devices for users.

‘Legislations and Regulations’ will explore data flow and protection across borders, and the governance of open data, whereas the ‘Application’ session will focus on IoT and the use of correct data to develop the decision-making process. 

‘Knowledge Management’ will look at how IoT can contribute to the collection and transformation of data into knowledge to improve its functionality; examining the influence of IoT and Big Data, knowledge management practices, smartphone applications, and ways of managing electronic libraries. The ‘Standards’ session will shed light on the general outlook of IoT devices and applications within a wide range of industries.
