MODELS 9: MIA for hybrid information environments
Breakout session topics
The workshop will divide into five breakout groups, to discuss the planned
topics listed below.
When collecting your name badge from the registration desk on 13th, please
let Joy Fraser (UKOLN Events Manager) know which topic you are most interested
in discussing (together with a second choice). Please also let us know if there
are any other topics which you feel are particularly relevant to address, and we
will consider their inclusion/substitution.
There are two breakout sessions, one in the afternoon of the first day, and
a second shorter session in the morning of day two. This is to allow people to
think about the issues overnight and then to refine results the next day and
prepare for the report back. Each group should nominate a rapporteur.
