Introducing Icepops: a new conference on copyright, creativity and games

We are thrilled to announce we are co-hosting a one day event: Icepops (International Copyright-Literacy Event with Playful Opportunities for Practitioners and Scholars) which will be held on Tuesday 3rd April 2018 at the University of Liverpool and will be the first satellite event run as part of the LILAC conference.

Devised by Chris Morrison and Jane Secker (the UK Copyright Literacy team) and run in conjunction with the CILIP Information Literacy Group, the day will include keynote speakers, a world café, an opportunity to play copyright games including the Publishing Trap and a playful copyright hackathon!

Conference themes:

Copyright education, games and play, creativity and the relationship of copyright literacy to information literacy and scholarly communication.

Call for speakers:

In the true spirit of creativity we are looking for a range of speakers with ideas, games, techniques or topics they’d like to discuss to get involved in shaping the day. Some ideas we have included involve: a games hack, a world cafe to showcase ideas and approaches, lightning talks or maybe something different such as a song or dance routine? Leave your inhibitions behind and come along prepared to experience something different to regular copyright events!

If you’d like to be part of Icepops 2018 then please complete the Contributor’s Form  before Monday 4th December and we will aim to get back to you by the 18th December 2017. Speakers will qualify for the reduced (£80) rate and be entered into the competition to qualify as the best idea, most creative approach to copyright education or copyright specialist of the year. Prizes will be awarded on the day!
