ICA 2015 Conference




The 3rd Annual Conference of ICA will be held on 29-29 September in the beautiful city of Reykjavik, Iceland.

The conference will address themes that are essential for archives in modern society, the role and function of archives and their importance for individuals, governments and businesses.


Under the theme of “Archives: Evidence, Security and Civil Rights Ensuring trustworthy information” the Annual Conference 2015 will without doubt be the highlight of this year’s professional calendar.


We are operating in an increasingly digitised world, accompanied by unprecedented accumulations of records. This new world offers many opportunities, however also brings with it considerable threats. Archives around the world must take on board a diverse and complex range of attitudes expressed by citizens, businesses and governments concerning the accountability of institutions, right of access to information, privacy/data protection, security of archival holdings and the protection of national security. The Annual Conference 2015 promises to bring together the best international speakers with a stimulating program of events to enable the Archives and Records Management community to engage with these important issues and influence the ongoing development of strategies and solutions.
