LISDIS 2016: Call for Papers

LISDIS conference is a conference where people can share dissertation research they completed as part of a library and information science qualification. It ran for the first time last year and both presenters and delegates commented on how much they got out of the event. LISDIS will take place on Saturday 5th November 2016 at University College London.

If you are interested in contributing a 15 minute presentation or a poster to the conference please complete the abstract submission form (.docx) and return it to LISDISConference@gmail.com by Friday 19th August 2016. Following the conference, there may be opportunities to publish your research. You may like to take a look at last year’s presentations to help you plan your presentation.

The criteria:

  • Have completed an LIS dissertation since 2013 that hasn’t been previously published or presented
  • Passionate and knowledgeable about your dissertation research and keen to present it to the wider profession
  • Can present on your research within the 15 minute time slot
  • Alternatively, create a poster on your research

All those who submit will be notified by Monday 5th September as to whether they have been successful.

The event is free to attend and speakers’ travel costs will be paid for (within reason). Poster session presenters are not required to attend, but will have to cover postage costs themselves if they do not.

Please contact us at LISDISConference@gmail.com if you would like to discuss your idea prior to submission, or if you have any further questions. We look forward to receiving your application!
