About the Event
The UKSG Committee is currently reviewing all of the submissions from this phase of the Call for Papers, and we will be in contact by the end of July. There will be gaps in the programme to be filled in later, to allow for emerging topics to be explored.
The conference attracts delegates from across the global knowledge community, including librarians, publishers and intermediaries. It provides a much-respected forum for discussing trends, showcasing initiatives, finding out about current practice across sectors, and connecting with other professionals.
Feedback from our recent 2019 conference in Telford suggests delegates are also interested in hearing about (in no particular order):
- Inclusion and equity in practice
- Teaching and Learning Support
- Research Data Management
- REF support
- Further Education – best practice and experience
- Text & Data Mining
- Open Science
- AI & Machine Learning
- Voices of Researchers and those responsible for research support
- Career Development/HR
- Learning Analytics
- Positioning the Library
To have a truly engaging conference, UKSG believes we need to hear from people with a variety of perspectives and backgrounds - and we particularly want to encourage and include those from under-represented communities. We are not there yet. As well as supporting all plenary speakers and lead breakout speakers with a free place and expenses, we are looking at expanding our list of sponsored places to support early career and target those from under-represented communities to attend, so please keep an eye out for sponsored places opportunities.
