We are delighted to announce that the second edition of the Icepops conference will be held at the University of Edinburgh on 26th June 2019. The conference will take place at the South Hall Complex on the University of Edinburgh campus.
Edinburgh is a fantastic location for the conference and we hope you will stay on for the evening and join us for the social event. Accommodation is available through the Edinburgh First website as well as a range of hotels in the city centre.
Following on from this year’s highly successful one day event in April 2018, on copyright education, games and playfulness, planning for Icepops II is currently full steam ahead! We are maintaining the links with the Information Literacy Group and LILAC, however the conference will be a standalone one-day event, with an evening social included as part of the conference.
We are thrilled to announce that this year’s keynote speakers are Simon Anderson, Director at music publisher Audio Network and Stephanie (Charlie) Farley, from the University of Edinburgh. You can find out more about our keynotes from the Icepops website, but there will be both a musical and a playful theme running throughout the day. We will also launch version 2.0 of our board game the Publishing Trap at the conference.
Once again we will be looking for speakers at the event and have a variety of suggested formats, including a world cafe, lightning talks, posters and games pitches. The call for contributions will open on 1st December 2018 and bookings will open in January 2019. In the meantime, if you have any queries about the conference do drop us a line.
