Apologies for cross posting - a reminder that the deadline for paper
proposals for this conference is 15 December. 

Archives and Records Association Annual Conference 

BRIGHTON, England, United Kingdom
29th – 31st August

CALL FOR PAPERS

‘Progression, Innovation and New Landscapes’

The Conference Programme Sub-committee is pleased to announce a call
for papers for the 2012 Conference. Following on from the success of
Edinburgh 2011 we have chosen a theme that encourages us to look ahead
and is intended to allow discussion around meeting current and future
challenges.  

We welcome proposals relating to the theme and, in particular, to the
following areas. 

●	Co-operation and partnerships: is bigger better?  
●	Meeting the requirements of new users and stakeholders
●	New governance and trusts
●	Communicating outside the sector
●	Managing the digital environment
●	What is the future of records management and archives: what are
we for?
●	New innovations in conservation and preservation

Proposals from across the sector (archivists, records managers and
conservators) are welcomed as well as papers from related and other
professions.

There will be two main tracks to the conference, an Archives & Records
Management track, and a Preservation & Conservation track. 

There will also be an afternoon of workshops relating to the theme.
These will not be in the form of lectures but will be participatory
sessions. 

The deadline for submission of proposals is:  15th December 2011.

Advice on proposals

The Programme Sub-committee welcomes contributions and ideas for
conference sessions from both individuals and groups for single
speaker
or group speaker sessions in a variety of formats including:
●	traditional sessions
●	focused debates on specific topics
●	panel discussions
●	roundtables
●	practical demonstrations
●	sessions encouraging audience participation or debate
●	workshops (as outlined above)
 
The programme is flexible and session lengths will be decided once
papers have been chosen but please note that individual speakers will
generally have no longer than 30 minutes for their presentations.

●	Try to connect your proposal to the theme of the conference as
best you can. The theme is designed for speakers to bring topics to
light that touch on contemporary issues
●	Try to be creative with your paper! How will your paper
stimulate debate?
●	Please provide as full information as you can about your
proposal – this helps the Committee in making choices about papers
and
scheduling of sessions
●	Try to be relevant and representative: consider looking at a
topic from opposing viewpoints, or focus on the broader picture rather
than institutionally specific ones
