Beskrivelse

The 26th symposium will be held in Riga, the capital of Latvia. This is a special year for us, since, in 2018, Latvia celebrates its 100th birthday.

The theme of BOBCATSSS 2018 is THE POWER OF READING.

There is no doubt that reading can be a great superpower. It all depends on how we use it. Each person has their own set of skills that can be developed throughout their lives. Reading is also a form of communication – through letters, books, posters, images, sheet music, as well as our facial expressions. Reading is everywhere.

As the flow of information constantly increases, we are grateful to memory institutions for helping us not to drown in the ocean of information. And thanks to modern technologies, reading is becoming more interesting and challenging.

We provide three sub-themes:

Reading Skills, Habits and Communication
Memory Institutions
Technological Solutions
