The British Library and the British Council have reluctantly cancelled The Architecture of Knowledge colloquium, planned to be held in London 29-30 October 1998

The purpose of the colloquium had been to explore the innovative partnerships which will be required to build the knowledge society. The programme featured a truly exceptional group of influential speakers from around the globe.

However, although there was support from the library and information community, the poor economic outlook meant that the colloquium did not attracted an appropriate number and range of delegates from the corporate sector nor from Asia, where the experience of rapid information society development would have made a critical contribution to the colloquium debate.

The British Council and the British Library are committed to excellence. The colloquium has been cancelled because we do not wish to proceed without the range of senior delegates required to generate leading-edge and truly influential debate. Cancellation has not been an easy decision, but we are convinced that it is the right one.

Registered delegates will, of course, receive a full refund.
