i2c2 2014

A reminder of this call for papers for an exciting new conference due to be held in Manchester, UK during 6th and 7th March 2014.

Innovation, Inspiration and Creativity Conference: Using Positive Disruption to improve libraries (or i2c2 for short)

We want to bring together a bunch of people (including librarians, learning developers, learning technologists and more) next year for a two day conference of inspiring each other to innovate and be more creative in libraries. There will be talks, workshops, fun and games galore. We’ll talk to each other about successes and challenges, thinking about how we can use what we learn from one another to improve libraries.

The call for papers (http://i2c2conference.org/) is open until 25th October 2013 and we’re looking for a limited number of talks, workshops and creative interventions that fit within the conference themes.

The overarching themes are those of innovation and creativity in information work, split into three strands: Space; People; Resources.

(Conference bookings will open Monday, Early bird tickets £250, standard tickets £295 which include conference attendance, lunches, refreshments and an evening networking event. Concession rates will be announced at a later date.)
