June 1st Agenda

1) Call for speakers - review of conference themes

Since the last meeting and the proposals we have received - are there any new areas we want to include, or themes we need to drop? Within each broad theme what are the sub-topics we want to cover?

What about the concept of ‘big data’ – we need to cover this, do we cover as a separate theme or incorporate into what we already have?

4) Brainstorm strap lines for the conference:

Please bring along any ideas you might have. Last year we had:

Discover new ways of working in the linked and social web

This year would be good to have something that includes mobile, new devices

LUNCH: 12.45-13.00

5) Programme structure

Whilst keeping in mind our core audience (Information Professionals), we need to consider how these themes should be best balanced against each other and whether anything is missing or needs to be dropped. In this meeting we need to get the ball rolling with establishing track themes and finalising the formula for the tracks/sessions.
Discussion of tracks: names and focus of tracks

Tracks in 2010:
Exploiting open and linked data
Harnessing opportunity from the social web and the cloud
Information Professionals demonstrating value and impact
New platforms and user behaviours for delivering content

Tracks in 2011:

Suggestions for names – do you agree/disagree/have another suggestion?

1. Mobile platforms: Strategies for effectively responding to new channels and devices

2. Exploiting open and linked data – keep as same name?

3. Harnessing opportunity from the social web and the cloud – or something like ‘Social Media: Business as Usual’?

4. The future of the profession
(to include new skills, new roles, evolving roles, adding value)

Other ideas?

Also need to consider:
- the ‘story’ over the three days
- balancing the tracks over the three days
- practical sessions in which tracks

5) Ideas for track keynotes & more speaker ideas

Need ideas for speakers and case studies around mobile and new devices especially librarians

Ideas for speakers who can talk about privacy and security issues around mobile

6) Timelines for the rest of the year
