Call for contributions:
We already have a number of speakers lined up who were due to present at Icepops 2020, but if you would like to present at the conference we are looking for contributions for the World Cafe and lightning talks. We are seeking contributions on any aspect of copyright education and copyright literacy, and playful approaches are particularly welcome. As an international conference we encourage contributions from all around the world, however the conference language will be English.
Contributions should be received by Monday 24th May 2021 and should be submitted on the following form.
The conference will be run using the Blackboard Collaborate platform. Video, audio and screen sharing are all possible using this platform, as well as break out rooms.

World Cafe presentations: World cafe presenters will be required to submit a short video in advance of the day which will be made available from the Icepops website. Presenters will then be available for a synchronous session in a break out room to answer questions about their presentation. The World cafe will take place from 2-3.30pm
Who should attend?
Icepops is aimed at copyright specialists and non-specialists, librarians, archivists, curators, learning technologists, educational developers, teachers, lecturers, publishers and creators involved in copyright education. The focus is on all levels of education from schools to higher education and continuing professional development. UK and international delegates are invited to share their experiences with colleagues.
The event was partly inspired by the IFLA one day seminar held in August 2017 on Models of Copyright Education in Information Literacy Programs.
