On behalf of the Program Committee for the 48th International Association of Aquatic and Marine Science Libraries and Information Centers (IAMSLIC) Annual Conference and the 4th Latin American Regional Group Meeting, we invite you to join us at the Conference on 18-21 October 2022.

This year's conference is HYBRID with both in-person and virtual participation possible. This means that live sessions will be presented in person at DINARA-Dirección Nacional de Recursos Acuáticos in Montevideo, Uruguay and will be streamed virtually. Never miss a moment! All recorded sessions will be made available for participants. The 2022 conference theme is From streams to oceans: Libraries informing sustainability of aquatic resources.

A message from our delightful host in Uruguay, Aída:

Dear colleagues of this great IAMSLIC family: Our meeting is very soon; the 48th IAMSLIC Conference & 4th Latin American Regional Group Meeting. It will be a pleasure to receive you in my country, Uruguay. We are preparing everything to make your stay pleasant.

We are going to pick you up at the airport for those who arrive from afar and at the port for those who cross the Río de la Plata. We will take you to the hotel you have chosen; the selected conference hotels are very close to the Conference venue, in DINARA.

In addition to the work days, we will have recreation! We will spend some fantastic days! The welcome dinner will have its charm: dance, tango, milonga and candombe!

DINARA is in the heart of the city of Montevideo and a few blocks from the Old City, where you can visit historical and emblematic places of the city. The Mercado del Puerto is a must for tourists. Very close we have the Municipal Palace with the Replica in bronze of "David" by Michelangelo, made in Florence, Italy (1931).

The Municipal Palace also has the Art History Museum. Close by are the Mercado de la Abundancia and Mercado Artesanal.

On the last day we will go to the city of Maldonado. In this city we have the well-known Punta del Este spa where the Museum of Contemporary Art was recently inaugurated. Punta del Este has many natural attractions. The whale watching season begins in October!!! You can also observe sea lions and birds!!

Dare to come; you will not regret it! I await you with open arms!

Your 2022 conference committee has worked hard to bring you a memorable experience!
