The Indexing Society of Canada/Société canadienne d’indexation invites you to join us at our annual conference on June 9 and 10, 2023, at the Murray Premises Hotel in St. John’s, Newfoundland.
This year’s conference theme is “See also Newfoundland.”
Special sessions include the following:
- a representative from Palgrave Macmillan on their in-house production process for indexes
- an optometrist on good eye care
Sessions on indexing practices include improving your efficiency (Pierke Bosschieter) and project management (Sergey Lobachev). Information sessions include talks on Mondeca (Glenda Browne), music texts (Paula Clarke Baine), and medieval names and glosses (Jolanta Komornicka). You will also hear highlights from an illustrious indexing career (Mary Newberry), an epic tale of an epic index (Ronnie Seagren), and all about writing a book on indexing (Stephen Ullstrom).
To welcome you to Newfoundland we’ve also organized a special get-together on Thursday afternoon: a boat tour of the harbour that can include sightings of icebergs, whales, and puffins. There is a separate charge for this sought-after event.
The conference will be followed on Sunday afternoon by an optional half-day live-indexing workshop by Stephen Ullstrom to demonstrate his work methods (separate charge).
Conference packages are available for Friday only, Saturday only, or for both days. The Murray Premises Hotel is giving attendees discounted rates for accommodations; these discounts are available for five days before and five days after the conference.
