 Invitation to submit a proposal to the 5th Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Libraries International Conference (QQML2013)

“It is our great pleasure to announce the 5th Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Libraries International Conference (QQML2013) at 4 – 7 June 2013, “La Sapienza” University, Rome Italy:

Since 2009 QQML has provided an excellent framework for the presentation of new trends and developments in every aspect of Library and Information Science, Technology, Applications and Research.

Past QQML conferences were successful events both from the number and quality of the presentations and from the post conference publications in Journals and Books. QQML2013 will continue and expand the related topics.

28 February 2013 – New Abstract Submissions Deadline

(The 6th QQML 2014 International Conference will be organized in Istanbul, Turkey.)

Beyond the PDF2 conference

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 to Wednesday, March 20, 2013 Pakhuis de Zwijger, Amsterdam, NL

“Scholarly communication across all disciplines is changing profoundly under the influence of new technologies. New models, tools and standards are being developed that aim to enhance, enable or entirely replace formerly ingrained forms of scholarly communication, including publications, courses, conferences and policy. The Beyond the PDF conference brings together scholars, librarians, archivists, publishers and research funders in a lively forum, not just to broaden awareness of current efforts across disciplines, but to define the future through discussions, challenge projects, demonstrations and seeding new partnerships and collaborations. Individually and collectively, we aim to bring about a change in modern scholarly communications through the effective use of information technology…”

This will be followed by a large group discussion, during which colleagues will have an opportunity to share their ideas for better managing time.
