call for speakers

Dear all,

As you may know, the UKSG organises an annual conference in April of
each year. For the last couple of years, we have invited suggestions
for topics and speakers and received some great suggestions as a
result - many of which have made it into the final programme.

We are now inviting you to suggest topics and speakers for the 2011
conference, which will be held in Harrogate, UK from 4­6 April 2011.

The conference is attended by librarians, publishers and
intermediaries in the scholarly communication supply chain, and
addresses standards, processes, technologies and initiatives relating
to our community. For full details of our international audience, and
feedback from previous conferences, please visit

Suggestions should be in the format of a brief synopsis and ideas for
speakers to talk on that topic. You may propose others as speakers and
we will contact them should the topic be picked up by our planning
committee. We would particularly welcome submissions from those in the
FE/Corporate/Government or NGO library community, as well as those
involved in other initiatives of interest to the UKSG community ( . Suggestions may be for plenary sessions or for the smaller breakout

You can review previous annual conference presentations at

Please send your suggestions / proposals (not the final presentation)
to by 16th June 2010.
