This is the 9th ASILE Conference but the first to use online audio-conferencing to offer a blend
of face-to-face and virtual participation. Some of our speakers and audience in Australia and Indonesia
will join the conference by using Adobe Connect Professional or iVocalize, the online audio-graphic
conferencing system we also used for the second National Online Undergraduate Seminar - Indonesian Studies
(NOUS-IS) on 6 October 2006. You are urged to investigate the use of iVocalize
before the Conference. Contact if you are interested to present or participate online.
