I am pleased to announce that registration is now open for the
GLAM-WIKI 2012 conference, to be held at the British Library in London
on 14th - 16th September 2012.
The conference will feature two days of presentations and workshops,
with the Friday focused on the work Wikimedia and similar
organisations have done in partnership with cultural institutions,
presenting case studies and discussing the benefits to both parties.
The Saturday will be oriented more towards the practical and technical
side, looking at ways to work together and running workshops to share
The third day, Sunday 16th, will be an unconference day, with the
focus and agenda determined by the attendees on the day.
We are currently taking proposals for talks, workshops and panel
sessions, on three broad themes:
* Open content in the GLAM sector
* Developing sustainable partnerships
* New models and future projects
The call for papers will close on 23rd July, and the schedule will be
announced on 30th July.
