‘Crafting a Winning Conference Proposal’ Eforum

Do you ever consider submitting a conference proposal but find yourself not knowing where to start? Have you submitted a proposal previously but want to share/discuss your tips with others? Join us for our next CIG eforum on ‘Crafting a Winning Conference Proposal’. Co-Moderated by Deborah Lee (Courtauld Institute of Art), Claire Sewell (Cambridge University) and Anne Welsh (University College London) the eforum will cover topics such as the benefits of presenting at conferences, getting started with your proposal, choosing a topic and common mistakes to avoid.

Although the discussion is primarily focused on the information world it is open to anyone with an interest in presenting at conferences.

What is a CIG e-forum?

A CIG e-forum provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters of interest, led by moderators through the e-forum discussion list.

The e-forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate with other participants through an email discussion.

E-forums are scheduled to last two days. Registration is necessary to participate, but it’s free and open to both members and non-members of CIG.


The eforum takes place on Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th of September. On both days sessions will begin at 10am and end at 4pm (UK time).

Instructions for registration are available at:


Once you have registered for one e-forum, you do not need to register again, unless you choose to leave the email list. Participation is free and open to anyone.
