The main plenary programme will sit alongside a variety of breakout focus and spotlight sessions, delivered by industry experts, covering the four main conference themes. The four key themes are:
• Future Skills and Future Roles - What society will need of the profession
• Information to best support society: Information and digital literacy in education, work, health and leisure
• Beyond Information Matters: Pushing the frontiers of Knowledge and Information Management
• Partnerships for progress: Community engagement reaching our communities at organisational, local, regional, national and international
As well as the cutting edge programme delegates can join us at the conference drinks reception as well as the conference dinner, both being held at the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) where CILIP has exclusive access. There will also be the opportunity to meet 50 leading LIS companies at the Umbrella exhibition. So if you're going to attend one event this year make sure it's Umbrella 2013.
