Call for Speakers - Beyond the Horizon - CILIP North-East Conference - Monday 20th May 2024 (afternoon)

 Come and tell us something you’re excited about!

This annual event aims to showcase work and issues from across the library, information and knowledge professions. We hope it will inspire attendees with new ideas, share knowledge and good practice or hear about things you’re experimenting with and developing. 

You could be involved with a new project, a different way of doing something, or just feel you’re already doing something great and think others would benefit from knowing about it. This is your opportunity to share something you’re excited about with other professionals, so you could talk about completed projects as well as work in progress.

 We welcome thoughts and papers from any library sector. We particularly encourage those who are looking to present for the first time, and those who belong to under-represented groups and communities, including but not limited to BAME, LGBTQIA+, those with disabilities, and those who are neurodivergent.

 The conference will take place online.

 It is free to CILIP members and £35 for non-members. 

Sessions - There will be two types of session for the conference:


  • Short papers - There will be 5 slots available for 20 minute talks, inclusive of Q&A opportunity.
  • Lightning talks - There will be 6 slots available for 5 minute talks, so we are looking for short and snappy! If you’d like to present and haven’t done so before, or just want to introduce something briefly, then this is perfect for you.
