European Conference on Information Literacy (ECIL)


Summary

The European Conference on Information Literacy (ECIL) aims to bring together researchers, information professionals, employers, media specialists, educators, policy makers and all the other related parties from around the world in order to exchange knowledge and experience and discuss recent developments and current challenges in and related to information literacy (IL). ECIL’s mission is to provide an annual forum for individuals interested in IL, where they would share information about their research and practice. The fi rst conference was organized by Hacettepe University, in Istanbul, Turkey, between 22–25 October 2013. The sixth conference is on its way. It will be hosted by the University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland, from 24–27 September 2018.
Both the international dimension and the research-practice nexus make ECIL diff erent from the other IL-focused events in Europe. As an event rather than an organization, ECIL is also situated in the enviable position of not being subject to bylaws or structure that might restrict its focus or voice.
