it is clear that everyone strongly emphasises the all important need for an appropriate balance
between numbers of information users and information providers attending the conference.
Therefore, the conference registration policies are in place to accommodate this principle and
ensure a highly professional and focused conference, training and exposition programme, and
strategic discourse, as well as a balanced and enriching networking experience.
