Information and Knowledge Management Professionals Gather at InfoToday 2002 Conference and Exhibition

May 31, 2002, Medford, NJ — Nearly 4,000 information and knowledge management professionals gathered in New York City earlier this month to attend the InfoToday 2002 conference and exhibition. 

Designed for the electronic information and knowledge management (KM) communities, this 3-day event (May 14 – 16) divided programming among three simultaneous core conferences—National Online, KnowledgeNets, and E-Libraries—and featured more than 70 sessions over six concurrent tracks. Popular sessions at the National Online conference, which focused on information content and information delivery technologies, included “Crystal Balling the Information Professional's Future,” “Secrets of the Hidden Web,” and “Retrieval Power: How to Crunch Disparate Content.” KnowledgeNets provided coverage of knowledge management and its applications within today's organization and packed in attendees with such sessions as “Increasing KM's ROI,” “Setting Context: Personas, Archetypes, and Organizational Engagement,” and “The Fabric of KM: Designing KM for Diverse Outcomes.” “Copyright Law and the Digital Rights Agenda,” “Enhanced Library Services,” and “Effects of September 11 on Government Information” were only some of the topics presented at the E-Libraries portion, living up to its stated scope of covering the latest developments in library and information center systems and services.

Other highlights of the conference were its keynote addresses—six in all—including opening keynotes by Stephen Abram, vice president, corporate development, Micromedia ProQuest; David Snowden, director, Institute for Knowledge Management, IBM; and the Honorable Patricia Schroeder, president & CEO, Association of American Publishers, and former Congresswoman. In addition, the exhibit hall featured over 60 booths, e-mail stations, a Tuesday night reception, morning coffee breaks, and a presentation theater, which played host to talks by such popular industry speakers as Greg Notess, Chris Sherman, and Ran Hock.

InfoToday 2003 will take place May 6 – 8, 2003 at the New York Hilton & Towers, New York, NY. For more information, please contact Information Today, Inc. at 800-300-9868 (outside the U.S. call 609-654-6266), e-mail, or visit
