AMICAL 2017, our next annual meeting and conference, will be held 17–20 May at the American College of Thessaloniki. Our theme will be “Centering on learning: Partnerships and professional development among librarians, faculty and technologists”.
Through the AMICAL Consortium, member institutions collaborate on the development of library, technology and curricular resources. The AMICAL Conference is where the vision for this work takes shape — and where the foundations for this work are laid.
With highly interactive presentations, workshops and discussions, the program combines invited keynotes with peer speakers to create an event filled with expertise, local relevance, innovation and inspiration. The program also gives ample meeting time to AMICAL’s committees for developing and advancing their goals.
An overview of the program is available. The call for proposals is now closed. More detailed information will be made available after responses have been sent out.
Our invited speakers bring exceptional expertise and perspective from different areas of critical relevance to librarians, faculty and technologists at AMICAL institutions.
The AMICAL Conference brings together faculty, librarians, technologists and others who are passionate about improving the learning experience of their students. The Conference helps these groups respond to the unique challenges and rich opportunities at member institutions, where highly international student and staff populations adapt the American liberal arts curricular model to diverse regional environments.
Registration will open, along with more information about financial support, in February 2017. In the meantime, information about the venue (the American College of Thessaloniki) and accommodation is already available.
