Call For Papers


THE CONFERENCE COMMITTEE IS THEREFORE calling for papers from researchers and practitioners related to "Libraries at the Forefront of Open Science." Issues of interest include:

  • What we are doing now
  • What will we do in the future

PAPERS SHOULD FOCUS ON RESEARCH and/or PROFESSIONAL PRACTICES within these topics as well as highlighting novel practices and be of sufficient depth for a 15-20 minute presentation, with time for discussion. Papers will be reviewed by a panel comprising international Library & Information Science (LIS) professionals, academicians, and practitioners. Post-Graduate students are encouraged to present their work within these themes. All presenters are expected to attend the conference as paying participants; the organizing committee is not able to sponsor any participants.
