CIG (MDG) Conference 2020
Metadata and Discovery
Birmingham, 9-11 September 2020

In 2020 the Cataloguing & Indexing Group (CIG) changes its name to Metadata & Discovery Group (MDG). Join us, at our biennial conference, as we explore the transformation of our profession and its increasing importance to the information economy.

Conference theme

Cataloguing and indexing are well-established recognised skill sets which continue to be at the forefront of our group’s offer. Our name change further reflects the fact that, as well as creating metadata, information professionals also need to manage, migrate and edit metadata in order to enable discovery of resources, and that they do so increasingly in non-traditional sectors.

For this conference we invite proposals around the theme of metadata and discovery with an emphasis on 'bigness': big ideas, big projects, big ambitions and big impact.

Whether you are an experienced presenter, or hoping to share your thoughts for the first time in front of a welcoming audience, we hope you will consider submitting a proposal. We encourage submissions from information professionals in every sector and are especially keen to hear from hitherto under-represented groups. The conference language is English and the event is open to both members and non-members.

Programme & Registration

Conference registration opens in April 2020. Further details will be posted here, through our blog, Twitter feed and relevant lists.
