The topics and presenters have added their own unique insights to this theme, and the ideas and collaborations that came out of the conference. I especially liked the plenary sessions throughout. These provided me with a chance to meet around critical issues in leadership and issues in the knowledge management field. I also participated in the ICKM council meeting after the closing remarks.

The theme—of the ASIS&T annual meeting was “Building and sustaining an ethical future with emerging technology” The theme of the ASIS&T 2018 Annual Meeting is focused on the ethical implications of the rapid and dynamic transformation of technology and its use in the collection and dissemination of information.
