Join us for ETD2020 (Electronic Theses and Dissertations) Conference in
November 2020 in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Our theme, ‘Discovery, data, and dates’ is a reflection of our interest in
the enhancement of discovery of research through digital repositories,
access to data from around the world and how the Networked Digital
Libraries of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD) have contributed to research
over time, and a light-hearted reference to our location in the home of
research into date palms.

The conference will be held at the United Arab Emirates University campus
in the oasis city of Al Ain, within the Abu Dhabi Emirate of the UAE and we
look forward to welcome you as researchers, librarians, archivists, open
access advocates and industry representatives to this exotic location at a
time of the year when the weather is perfect!

*Dates:* 16-18 November 2020

University, Al Ain.
