LILAC 2021: Call for presentations reminder

There’s still time to submit a presentation proposal for LILAC 2021.

LILAC 2021 will be taking place from 7-9 April 2021 at Manchester Metropolitan University. We are planning for the conference to go ahead in its usual format but are closely monitoring the current COVID situation. We are exploring an online option should things change and we will keep you informed.

LILAC welcomes proposals which address information literacy from all sectors and contexts. In 2021 we invite you to present on any aspect of information literacy, there are no specific themes. We ask that your presentation makes explicit reference to your innovative practice or research in information literacy.

LILAC is committed to encouraging diversity at the conference and we would specifically like to encourage proposals from members of the BAME community and other under-represented communities and sectors.

There are a number of different types of presentation you can submit, including micro-teach, workshop, masterclass and short/ long presentation. More information can be found on the LILAC website.

Deadline for proposals:

  • Call for presentations opens: 10 October 2020
  • Call for presentations deadline: 12 November 2020 (17:00 GMT)
  • Notification of acceptance of abstracts: 23 December 2020
  • Full presentation submission deadline: 25 March 2021

To submit a presentation you will need to register for an account, if you already have an account then you just need to login and go to ‘my account’ where you’ll see details of how to submit.

If you submitted a proposal for LILAC 2020 and have agreed for this to be included in the 2021 programme, you will already have been contacted.

All submissions to the conference are peer reviewed before acceptance.
