Happy 2018 everyone – it promises to be an excellent year for copyright events! For those in London we are kicking off the new year with a meeting of Sherlock, our London and South East copyright specialists community of practice in early February. We also have two events lined up for CPD25 in February, one of which is a panel discussion on copyright support in higher education with members of the Sherlock community. And in March, for those in the north west of England we are running a NOWAL workshop entitled an Introduction to Copyright and Copyright Education. We’re also excited to be speaking at the DARTS conference in May at Dartinghall Hall, Devon. You can see the full listing on our Events page.
However the most exciting event of the year is going to be Icepops, the international copyright literacy event with playful opportunities for practitioners and scholars. We’ve had a fantastic response to the call for contributions from UK and international folks, however there is still just about time to get a submission in to us as it will close on Monday 8th January at 5pm GMT. But if you have an idea and think you can’t make the deadline then drop us a line.
We currently have our keynotes lined up but we hope to announce a full list of speakers during the parallel sessions in the next week or so. There will also be an opportunity to play (and provide feedback) on our new game, The Publishing Trap at the conference. We’re delighted to have support from CREATe, IPAN and the IPO Education team and are really look forward to the event, which is going to be at the University of Liverpool on Tuesday 3rd April. We hope to see you there and booking for the event is now open.
