Apologies for cross-posting.



International conference on emerging technologies in academic libraries 2012

                1-3 October 2012, Trondheim, Norway


                              Call for papers


It's time to remind you that the deadline for submitting abstracts is on Sunday 
15 April.

Emerging technologies and evolving user behaviour keep changing the rules of 
the game for academic libraries. Emerging technologies include new ways of 
using existing technologies and totally new, disruptive technologies. Examples 

- Semantic web / linked open data

- Social media

- Augmented reality

- Mobile technologies

- Visualisation

- etc

emtacl12  is an international conference for academic librarians, information 
professionals, academic staff, students, library system developers and 
suppliers, among others. The aim is to provide answers to the following 
questions: What can academic libraries do to address change? How can we adapt? 
Which technologies can/should/must we use/create? The conference is hosted by 
NTNU University Library, the Library of the Norwegian university of science and 
technology in Trondheim, Norway.

The programme committee invites original presentations and posters taking one 
or more of the following perspectives as a point of departure:

- Linked open data and other semantic web applications in the library

- New literacies

- Supporting research

- Organizational change within the library

- Analysis of user behaviour and use of statistics

- New services/old services in new clothes

- Other relevant perspectives on emerging technologies

We invite submission of abstracts or posters presenting:

- Theoretical solutions, but with a clear illustration on how these solutions 
can be applied in libraries

- Opinions on some aspect of practice, or descriptions of work that is still in 
progress, but sufficiently mature to warrant attention

- Experiences and case studies specifying requirements, challenges, or 
opportunities of applying emerging technologies in libraries

- Comparisons with alternative or competing approaches using conventional 

- Best practices for implementing emerging technologies in libraries

- Assessments of cost and benefits from the application of emerging 
technologies, e.g. time and cost of implementation and deployment, integration 
with legacy IT systems, user acceptance, returns on investment

We will also open for live demos of emerging technologies, and invite 
submission of abstracts or videos describing such demos.
