Icepops is the International Copyright-Literacy Event with Playful Opportunities for Practitioners and Scholars.
The fourth edition of Icepops (Icepops 2023) will be held at the University of Glasgow at the Advanced Research Centre on Thursday 20th July 2023. It will form part of a festival of copyright events running from 19-21 July in partnership with CREATe (UK Copyright and Creative Economy Centre) at the University of Glasgow. There will be an evening social and various satellite events on the day preceding and following the conference.
Call for papers
The call for papers is now open and closes on 27 March 2023.
There are a variety of formats including lightning talks, world cafe presentations, posters or something else. We require a short abstract and your proposal which will be sent to the Icepops panel for peer review.
Conference format and programme
Lightning talks: Presenters will have 7-8 minutes to deliver a plenary presentation on copyright education.
World Cafe presentations: There will be a series of world café presentations each allocated a table to answer questions and demonstrate their work in small groups. Delegate groups will rotate around the room so you have a chance to hear from each of the speakers.
Final panel: a closing panel will take place at the conference
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.
