Welcome to DIFC Week 2008

The Middle East is enjoying exceptional economic development despite the turmoil in western markets.

However, as the global crisis continues, how can the region shield itself from its impact and sustain its prosperity? In the coming years, how can it work with the rest of the world to take greater advantage of growth opportunities? What role can traditional industries like energy and the dominant family-business sector play in consolidating growth? How can women play a larger part in the economic surge?

The region’s ultra-high-net-worth individuals join global business leaders to discuss these issues at DIFC Week, the Dubai International Financial Centre’s annual programme of conferences.

The week starts off with a golf tournament that ensures a relaxed start to the business sessions.

World Congress of Muslim Librarians and Information Scientists (wCOMLIS) 2008

The World Congress of Muslim Librarians and Information Scientists (wCOMLIS) is continuation of the Congress of Muslim Librarians and Information Scientists (COMLIS) one of the congresses that gather information professionals (consisting of librarians, information scientists, information managers, etc) from Islamic and non-Islamic countries all over the world. It has countries all over the world. It has organized its events for several times throughout the world, such as:

1st COMLIS, 1982, United States of America (USA)
2nd COMLIS, October 20 – 22, 1986, Kedah, Malaysia
3rd COMLIS, May 24 – 26, 1989, Istanbul, Turkey
4th COMLIS, June 20 – 23, 1995, Tehran, Iran

Generally, wCOMLIS 2008 is organized to bring together Muslim librarians from all over the world to discuss on library related matters that affect them. It aims to cooperate on mutually beneficial schemes and to establish communication with each other through congresses, forums, and other forms of communication. It focuses on assisting each other in ways which will enhance the access and delivery of information to those who need it. It intends to foster the brotherhood of Islam amongst librarians and information professionals.

WCOMLIS 2008 is not a religion based congress but it mainly discusses the core aspects of managing Islamic information. The management of this information is important in order to determine the resources of Islamic information, for analyses and syntheses into valuable products. Indirectly, it will portray the Islamic information as global and accessible by anyone without prejudice. This will repulse stigma among the western society that Islamic information resources are not freely accessed, indeed, the main issue is the lack of bibliographic tools that control information resources to be accessed and retrieved.
