UKSG Conference 2013 - call for topics

UKSG Conference 2013 - call for topics

Reminder: Deadline Monday 11th June 2012.

We are inviting you to suggest topics and speakers for UKSG's next annual conference, which will be held in Bournemouth, UK from 8-10 April 2013.

The conference is attended by librarians, publishers and intermediaries, and addresses standards, processes, technologies and initiatives relating to the knowledge community. For full details of our international audience, previous programmes, previous conference presentations and feedback, please visit

Suggestions should be in the format of a brief synopsis and ideas for speakers to talk on that topic, as well as others identified to speak on the same panel, if possible.

You may propose others as speakers and we will contact them should the topic be picked up by our planning committee. Suggestions may be for plenary sessions or for smaller breakout sessions.

*** New for 2013: Lightning Talks ****

Similar to poster sessions, if you would like to give a 10 minute presentation about a current project or case study (not a product review) as part of the conference and would be prepared to chat to delegates informally about your topic afterwards, please let us know. UKSG will cover the cost of a conference place for speakers whose proposals are accepted.

Please send your suggestions / proposals (not the final presentation) to by: Monday 11th June 2012

Secretary, UKSG
