ECIL programme available #ecil2013

The detailed programme for the European Conference on Information Literacy (ECIL), to be held 22-24 October 2013, at Harbiye Military Museum and Cultural Centre in Istanbul, Turkey, is now available. The main problem will be deciding which of the parallel sessions to attend (mostly 6 things going on at once) and how to keep up your stamina from the 8.30 start to the 8pm finish ;-) But to be serious, there are huge numbers of very interesting papers, covering a wide range of aspects of information literacy, and with speakers from around the world. I am doing an invited talk, and also a workshop. Two of my doctoral students are also participating.
The two keynotes are Christine Bruce and Paul G. Zurkowski (widely regarded as the originator of the term Information Literacy) and there are lots more famous names of information literacy speaking.
The website is at with the programme available to download on the right of that page.
