CIG is pleased to offer two sponsored places (one funded by CILIP and one funded by CIG) to this year’s CILIP Conference, held on 2-3 July 2015 in Liverpool. The conference will feature high profile speakers and cover a diverse programme around the four main themes: Information management, Information literacy and digital inclusion, Demonstrating value, and Digital futures and technology.
The bursaries include the delegate fee for both conference days, accommodation at Z Hotels on Thursday 2 July, attendance to the drinks reception at The Museum of Liverpool (also on Thursday 2 July), and travel expenses of up to £50.
Applicants must be CIG members (please note that CILIP membership is required for one place). We would like the sponsored delegates to attend at least one session related to cataloguing, classification, metadata etc., and write a report/summary to be publicised on our blog and/or journal. Your application should demonstrate why you would like to attend, how you would use your attendance to highlight or promote CIG and why you would not be able to attend without CIG sponsorship.
Please send your application to Helen.Doyle@nortonrosefulbright.com by 17th April 2015. Applications will be judged by members of the CIG committee and candidates notified by 15 May 2015
