> We are pleased to announce Poland's first conference on the idea of
> openGLAM - a new way of thinking about the mission of cultural
> institutions and the use of their resources - at the Zachęta National
> Gallery of Art on 11-12 October 2013.
> We are waiting through 31 August for suggestions of sessions,
> workshops, and presentations to draw up the conference programme
> together. We are already registering conference participants.
> The main purpose of the conference is to present outstanding examples
> of implemented initiatives as well as to discuss the benefits - and
> challenges - of openness. Special emphasis will be on educational and
> regulatory issues. openGLAM 2013 will be an opportunity for
> open-culture activists to meet persons and institutions willing to
> proceed in this direction. We hope it will provide a great forum for
> sharing knowledge and experiences.
> openGLAM 2013 is an initiative addressed primarily at staff members of
> cultural and heritage institutions, increasingly often referred to as
> the 'GLAM' (galleries - libraries - archives - museums) sector. It
> will also prove of interest to persons cooperating with such
> institutions and running projects that use their resources:
> researchers, culture animators, authors, NGO activists.
> Interested persons and/or organisations are asked to submit programme
> proposals in three categories:
> + sessions or workshops: please submit title, abstract, and proposed
> participations of a session/workshop 90-120 minutes long;

> to 20 minutes long
> + poster-session presentations: please submit title and abstract of a
> presentation up to 20 minutes long, accompanied by a poster or other
> form of visual presentation
> We are also open to other creative ideas.
> The main spoken language of the conference is Polish, but we are about
> to provide symultaneus translation to English.
