IFLACamp is the first ever “unconference” to be held in conjunction with an IFLA conference. The 2012 IFLACamp will be structured as a satellite meeting just prior to the main conference in Helsinki, Finland on August 11-17. It will meet in Hämeenlinna (about 100 km north of Helsinki) on August 9-10 and is being organized by IFLA’s New Professionals Special Interest Group (NPSIG). The theme will be “New Professionals Now”. Proposals for topics are being solicited in video format and are due by the end of 2011. Submissions will be available on NPSIG’s blog and comments and votes may be freely made. Prospective attendees will welcome the news that there will be no registration fee.
I look forward to following this fascinating development and bringing you periodic updates.
