AMICAL 2018, to be held 4-7 May at the American University of Central Asia, marks our 15th annual meeting and conference.
What’s in the future for education at international liberal arts institutions? What’s changing in the ways that students and faculty acquire, use, create and share information and scholarship? This year’s conference will set the stage for AMICAL members to engage with each other and with invited experts on those questions — and on many other questions related to libraries, technology and learning at our member institutions.
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 call for proposals is now open, inviting AMICAL members to help build the conference program under the following theme:
International liberal arts in a digital era: reimagining a shared vision for libraries, technology and learning
Invited speakers and detailed program information will be posted here by early spring, but see the program overview for the anticipated shape of the event.
