Event description

Description

ARE YOU FUTURE READY?

For information professionals the changing nature of the role and services they provide is key to survival and growth. Being able to anticipate and shape these changes will ensure we are truly "future ready". SLA Europe, the European Chapter of the global information association SLA Special Libraries Association, is holding its first ever European conference which aims to explore this topic.


Papers

The full programme will be announced in mid-June and our speakers will provide key insights into the key changes expected for our sector. Themes will include managing change, skills development, developments in specific sectors and diversity in the profession and will be delivered through a range of events including key note speakers, seminars, lightning talks and panel discussions.


Social Events

Coffee/tea and lunch will be provided with an opportunity to network with other delegates in the wonderful gardens surrounding the college. The conference dinner will take place in the beautiful College Hall, designed by Basil Champneys, with views onto Newnham's stunning gardens https://www.newn.cam.ac.uk/conferences/dinners-receptions/dining-reception-rooms/

A number of other social events will be planned and, for those who would like to further explore Cambridge and the surrounding area, our conference programme will provide sightseeing and other activities.


Who should attend?

Information professionals working in any sector including business, law, government, academic, STEM, trade associations as well as vendors, consultants and independent researchers will find this conference of key importance.
