LILAC Call for Presentations – Now Open!



We are pleased to let you know that the call for presentations for LILAC 2022 is now open.

LILAC 2022 will be taking place from 11-13 April 2022 at Manchester Metropolitan University. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely. We are working with our venues to ensure that suitable safety measures are in place, and are adhering to the current health authority guidance. Thank you for your support and feedback following the FestivIL by LILAC online event, we are committed to a face to face conference for 2022 but are looking at options for future LILAC activities.

LILAC welcomes proposals which address information literacy from all sectors and contexts. In 2022 we invite you to present on the theme of ‘Moving Forward’. What are you going to do as we continue to work through, and hopefully move past, the pandemic? The last 18 months have presented many challenges to our practice but how is information literacy evolving within your sector and what will we continue to do? 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 short/ long presentations, workshops, panel discussions or a wildcard. More information about all the presentation types can be found on the LILAC website.
