“On behalf of the Hot Topics team, I am delighted to share ARL’s open program at the WLIC in Rotterdam. This year’s Hot Topic on Artificial Intelligence has generated much interest and we have received many proposals from around the globe. The Hot Topics session is scheduled for 60 minutes and will have two parts: three ignite talks (8 minutes each) and round table discussions where the audience can learn and share more about their experiences with AI in their own libraries, campuses or countries.
The 2023 Hot Topics presenters are:
Cecilia Adewumi and Adetoun Oyelude (Nigeria)
“Anfang – Bot – Schluß” : Visualizing Future Academic and Research Libraries
