London Info International 2017 is more than just another conference and exhibition; it is an independent platform that enables discussions, engages communities, shares knowledge and drives change with influencers, users and providers of information across all disciplines. LII 2017 is independent and inclusive. It exists to bring together a community of engaged information professionals to improve outcomes in research, education and business.
We are delighted by the reaction to our second London Info International Conference Programme. We have a truly diverse set of speakers who will discuss and debate the most important and pertinent topics affecting us in the information industry.
This year our programme focuses on the changes affecting industries globally: uncertainty, Brexit, AI, cyber security and fake news – just a few of the hot issues our speakers will debate. It’s increasingly difficult to rely on traditional social and political reference points. Faced with shifting strategic and financial challenges, we’ll ask how we in the information industry navigate a course.
We’ll also cover the rise to prominence in the workplace of millennials and Generation C tribes, the latest developments in the Open movement. We will ask whose research is it anyway? In a networked world do we need to rethink the way rights are protected and managed? Plus, we’ll hear from a new generation of start-ups that are challenging the status quo within our industry.
This year’s conference is not just about celebrating everything that actively enables the information community to be at the cutting-edge of change, it’s also about preparing for the future. What happens next? What will the information landscape look like in five or ten years’ time? Who will be the stakeholders? Over the two days of our conference we hope to find some clues and insights.
We’re looking forward to a thought-provoking and enjoyable two days and we hope you’ll join us at the Business Design Centre in December.
Alongside the main conference come and experience a completely free exhibition comprising leading publishers as well as tools, technology and service providers to the global information and library communities.
The exhibition will include a completely free Open conference stream incorporating keynotes, business games and educational sessions as well as a full show floor programme of free to attend sessions. Special pre-arranged networking will be available for those seeking to solve specific challenges.
Also, brand new for this year we are, in partnership with Research Information magazine, staging “Challenges in Scholarly Publishing”, an interactive one-day conference for publishers, information professionals and academics, to be held on Monday 4 December.
