BOBCATSSS 2012 - Call for papers

The topic of the 20th BOBCATSSS Symposium has been announced - 'Information in e-motion'


BOBCATSSS is an annual symposium organised by students at a number of universities in Europe. It takes place under the auspieces of EUCLID (European Association for Library and Information Education and Research) and deals with themes from library and information science. Every year it is organised, managed and filled with content by students from an Eastern and Western European university. The universities have in common that they educate in the field of library and information sciences.

Target groups of the BOBCATSSS symposiums are information specialists, students, professors in the field of library and information education and research and employees of libraries and information departments. BOBCATSSS is a European meeting place between the professionals of tomorrow and today's researchers and teachers.

It's unique that teams of students plan and realise both the content and the management of the symposium as a part of their studies. The students are responsible for every aspect of arranging the conference, from marketing and financing to logistics and abstract and paper management. Due to this they profit a lot by border crossing teamwork with other European countries.

The BOBCATSSS 2012 symposium is organised by students from the Amsterdam (Hogeschool van Amsterdam, University of Applied Sciences), Stuttgart (Stuttgart Media University) and Groningen (Hanze University Groningen). 

The conference will take place 23 - 25 January 2012 in Amsterdam.

Proposals for presentations are invited.
