2011 annual meeting: listen to speakers and (in some cases) view their presentations:

Developments in EU information, Ian Thomson, EIA President audio (58 mins) and PowerPoint
Common Access to EU information, Peter Schmitz, Publications Office audio (32 mins) and PowerPoint
EUR-Lex, Michael Duero, EUR-Lex audio (33 mins)

NB audio files have been roughly edited, usually to remove material at the start/finish of presentations; some loss of quality is obvious in places and is due to a speaker's position in relation to the digital voice recorder.
