ELAG 2013 Workshops 29-31 May 2013, Ghent, Belgium
The deadline for call for proposals for Workshops has been extended to Friday 15th Februar 2013.
The results of the review process will be sent by Friday 1st March
Would you like to lead a stimulating discussion with a group of library technologists?
Do you prefer encouraging audience participation rather giving a formal lecture?
Do you have a specific area of expertise that you would like to discuss with like-minded colleagues?
Then lead a workshop during ELAG 2013!
Workshops are a unique feature and an important part of the ELAG conference. They give participants an opportunity to acquire new skills, enhance their knowledge and get a more in-depth view of a specific topic.
The keyword for ELAG conferences is participation, so ELAG workshops strive to be interactive, hands-on and solution-based in order to draw from the experience and knowledge of participants and produce useful advances, solutions or recommendations for the library community.
A workshop leader will have a good grasp or some experience of the subject, but it is not necessary to be a top expert in the field (though in the past many renowned experts have run ELAG workshops). A good workshop leader will present a topic and then stimulate discussion and exchange of views and experiences rather than lecture.
Past topics have included: Indexing with SOLR, using jQuery, Linked Data and Web services.
Elag 2013 will be hosted by Ghent University Library and the Ghent University Faculty Library Arts & Philosophy in Ghent, Belgium.
