Preparations for our GLAM-WIKI 2013 conference continue. The event takes place at the British Library, London, over the weekend of 12-14 April 2013 and is a conference for the global GLAM sector and the Wikimedia community. We're in the process of finalising what promises to be an exciting programme. Our confirmed keynote speakers are Michael Edson from the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, Lizzy Jongma from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and Nick Poole from the Collections Trust.
The call for papers for the conference is open and the process closes on 15 February. Tickets are now available for the conference and can be booked here. Thanks to our partnership with Europeana and the British Library we've been able to offer concessions and keep the cost of tickets down to £15-£40.
