Berlin, Germany, 17-18 October 2022
To concide with the triennial meeting of ICRIS (International Committee of Representatives of Indexing Societies), an international conference will be held in the heart of Europe, enabling participants to explore one of the most famous and cosmopolitan cities in the world.
Organised jointly by the Netherlands and German indexing networks (NIN and DNI) and the Society of Indexers, in cooperation with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Information und Wissen e.V (DGI), this will be a hybrid event – online and on-site – with presentations live-streamed to online participants.
The conference will give indexers the opportunity to widen their horizons and hone their skills, while also networking with colleagues old and new.
Our three keynote speakers approach the organisation of information from contrasting viewpoints and give the conference a truly international flavour. Judith Flanders (UK and Canada) looks back at the developmentof alphabetical ordering, Professor Kiene Brillenburg-Wurth (The Netherlands) focuses on the future of the alphabet and its implications for indexing, while Professor Urs Stäheli (Germany) takes a sociological apporach to indexes and list-making. The programme will also include contributions from indexers around the world on a wide range of issues, from client relations to e-book developments, as well as a publishers’ panel.
