Creating Knowledge XI call for papers #CKIX2018

March 1 2018 is the deadline for submitting proposals for the Creating Knowledge IX conference (focusing as usual on information literacy and learning), taking place 6-8 June 2018 in Vingsted, Denmark. This always-interesting conference is sponsored by Nordinfolit and also supported by the Danish Research Library Association. "The overarching theme of the 2018 conference will be best practice, and topics will include new skills, new technologies, and new ways to interact with and engage our patrons. We want to look to the future and explore how libraries and the people working in libraries can continue, in informed and meaningful ways, to contribute to the creation of knowledge and the facilitation of successful learning in higher education and beyond." The tracks are: new skills; new technologies; new ways to interact with and engage our patrons.
"We encourage all formats, from brief pitches and papers, to hands-on workshops and open space events. We want the conference contents to be as multifarious as possible so as to create a both relevant and thrilling learning experience for everyone involved. If you wish to submit a proposal, please send us a summary of your contribution, including a description of the intended format, and we will get back to you to arrange the details after the review process."
The conference fee is all-inclusive: 2½ days conference, 2 nights, all meals, social networking, pre-conference social program, conference dinner, and shuttle buses from Vejle Station on selected arrivals. Conference fee 5995 DKK; Early bird / DFFU members 5495 DKK. For more information go to the conference website
