In late April 2010 (04/26-04/28) I plan to attend and hope to present
at EMTACL10 > The International Conference On Emerging Technologies In
Academic Libraries 2010 in Trondheim, Norway.

I intend to prepare an abstract / paper / presentation about major
initiatives relating to Mobile Libraries / Mobile Learning that will
be derived from my >>> Research In Public <<< Blog _Mobile Libraries_
and my ongoing review of current and emerging developments in these

The EMTACL10 conference will be hosted by the Library of the Norwegian
University Of Science And Technology  (NTNU)

"This is a new international conference for academic librarians,
information professionals, academic staff, students, library system
developers and suppliers, among others. The conference aims to provide
answers to the following questions: What can academic libraries do to
address change? How can we adapt? Which technologies can/should/must
we use/create?"

"This is a conference for academic library workers and others with a
general interest in emerging technologies and electronic information
services >>>

User Profiles / Sharing / Social Technologies / Mashups / Tagging /
Emerging Learning Technologies / Semantic Web / Aggregation / Cloud
Computing / Virtualization / Social Networks / Mobile Technologies
/Communication With Users / Location Awareness / User-Behaviour Data
And Analysis / Streaming / Democratization / Interfaces

I Am Greatly Interested in Spreading The World About Mobile
Libraries/Learning And Would Be Honored To Present On The Topic(s)
(Focused On Your Particular Interests And Those Of Your Community)
At/In >>>Other Venues<<<  Before/ After My Visit To Trondheim ... So

While abroad I would willing to travel to any country in Europe /
Eastern Europe / Middle East  [a week or so before or after my visit
to Norway]

It Would Be Great To Return To Ireland, Italy, Spain, As Well As The
UK, But There Are Places I've Not Been ...

While an honorarium is always appreciated, I ask (as a minimum) that
my direct expenses be covered (moderately-priced accommodations,
meals, travel).

Please Note: I always attempt to find the least expensive / best value
housing and airfare/rail whenever I do travel.
