Introducing London Info International 2017 (1)

What will the information landscape
look like
in five or ten years’ time?

Who will be the stakeholders?

By Clive Snell, Director, London Info International

London Info International 2017 is more than just another conference and exhibition; it is an independent platform that enables discussions, engages communities, shares knowledge and drives change with influencers, users and providers of information across all disciplines. LII 2017 is independent and inclusive. It exists to bring together a community of engaged information professionals to improve outcomes in research, education and business.

The London Info International Conference Programme has a truly diverse set of world leading speakers who will discuss and debate the most important and pertinent topics affecting us in the information industry.

Our programme focuses on the changes affecting industries globally: uncertainty, Brexit, AI, cyber security and fake news - just a few of the hot issues our speakers will debate. It’s increasingly difficult to rely on traditional social and political reference points. Faced with shifting strategic and financial challenges, we’ll ask how we in the information industry navigate a course.

We’ll also cover the rise to prominence in the workplace of millennials and Generation C tribes, the latest developments in the Open movement. We will ask whose research is it anyway? In a networked world do we need to rethink the way rights are protected and managed?  Plus, we’ll hear from a new generation of start-ups that are challenging the status quo within our industry.

This year’s conference is not just about celebrating everything that actively enables the information community to be at the cutting-edge of change, it’s also about preparing for the future. What happens next? What will the information landscape look like in five or ten years’ time? Who will be the stakeholders? Over the two days of our conference we hope to find some clues and insights.

We’re looking forward to a thought-provoking and enjoyable two days and we hope you’ll join us at the Business Design Centre in December.

Alongside the main conference come and experience a completely free exhibition comprising leading publishers as well as tools, technology and service providers to the global information and library communities.

The exhibition will include a completely free Open conference stream incorporating keynotes, business games and educational sessions as well as a full show floor programme of free to attend sessions. Special pre-arranged networking will be available for those seeking to solve specific challenges.

Also, brand new for this year we are, in partnership with Research Information magazine, staging “Challenges in Scholarly Publishing”, an interactive one-day conference for publishers, information professionals and academics, to be held on Monday 4 December.

Bringing the information community
in its broadest context together

Weitere Informationen zu LII finden sich in einem Interview in Jinfo, das am Dienstag veröffentlicht wurde. Siehe Im Folgenden ein Auszug:

Jinfo: What makes it different from other industry events?

Clive Snell: There are an awful lot of other industry events but I guess the fundamental difference is that we're not tied to any membership bodies and we're very international. There are many events that are there to serve members and that's great and we've actually got good partnerships with a number of them, but we're not driven by that.

We're driven by our desire to bring the information community in its broadest context together. Through this desire, we want to be as inclusive as possible and get as many people attending as we can.

Liebe Password-Redaktion, lieber Herr „W.B.“, 

danke für die Berichterstattung. 

Ich will nicht die Möglichkeit bestreiten, dass tatsächlich ein Uwe Marquardt  zur „Inkompetenz der Kompensationskompetenz“ veröffentlicht hat, aber was für eine Koinzidenz, dass es ein Beinahe-Namensvetter, Odo Marquard, war, der den Begriff der „Inkompetenzkompensationskompetenz“ prägte.
