Out of the comfort zone: DREaM project launch conference full programme published

Today we published the full programme for the DREaM project launch conference to be held at the British Library Conference Centre, London on Tuesday 19th July. Taking “Out of the comfort zone” as its main theme, the exciting schedule includes sessions that cover: the DREaM project itself; the trajectory of LIS research; research collaborations across disciplines; research approaches, methods and techniques; research dissemination (including working with the media); public engagement with research; and the building of a research network for LIS researchers in the UK. There will also be an opportunity for delegates to participate as speakers themselves in a One Minute Madness session, following the success of this format at the LIS Research Coalition conference in June 2010.

Registrations will open for the DREaM project launch conference in early May.
