1325  The Future of the Profession - Nick Poole, CEO, CILIP
  The workforce is changing and the library and information profession is not exempt from this. But what does this mean for you? What skills will you need? What jobs are you going to do? Whilst these are challenging questions to answer, this presentation examines current trends and introduces a variety of new areas in which the profession is evolving. Whilst the adage of ‘change is a constant’ remains true, we will explore how to prepare for the impacts of technological and digital influence in the near future.
1425  Shapeshifting services for the future  -  Mark Freeman, President, SCL
  Libraries and the way we deliver services have constantly changed and what might have seemed inconceivable just fifty years ago is now everyday practice.  Time does not stand still and just as the profession develops, the way in which we deliver libraries and information services also continues to change shape.  What are the factors that will affect us as we move forward; how will our services and our influences evolve; what do we need to do to take us to the service points of the future?  How do we ensure that our communities and audiences benefit from our shared expertise?

1540  Automation and AI - impacts and opportunities - Terry Corby, Growth and Change Leader
  Every week there seems to be a rehashed article covering the 'rise of the robots', who appear to be clambering up the corporate ladder. Their aspirations may have no bounds! No one is safe...or are they? Terry is going to open up discussion to a range of case studies exploring the impacts of technology and how it has reshaped working processes in new and exciting ways.
