Information Technologies Indigenous Communities (ITIC) will be a two-day Symposium on Wednesday and Thursday, 27–28 September 2017, at the University of Melbourne held with the support of and in conjunction with ASA National Conference. It will incorporate, as one of its streams, the 16th Symposium on Indigenous Music and Dance of the National Recording Project for Indigenous Performance in Australia.

The ITIC Symposium will be held in memory of the late Dr JN Gumbula from northeast Arnhem Land, who was a major contributor to establishing the National Recording Project and to enhancing knowledge of Indigenous archives and collections in Australia and internationally. Dr Gumbula was a researcher, Yolngu leader and ARC Indigenous Fellowship recipient who passed away in 2015. He worked extensively with Australian archives, museums and universities including the University of Melbourne, University of Sydney Archives, the Macleay Museum, Museum Victoria, and the Australian National University amongst many others.
