We are glad to announce that BOBCATSSS 2023 (25-27 January 2023) will be for the first time in Norway! 

Main organizer of the Conference will be Oslo Metropolitan University, Department of Archivistics, Library and Information Science.

In that year’s Open call for the BOBCATSSS organizers we received two very strong candidatures.

BOBCATSSS 2021 was a virtual edition, due to the COVID-19 worldwide crisis. The host were Porto Polytechnic (ISCAP). The virtual event was interesting and inspiring, but all participants wish to be in a beautiful Portugal…

In connection with that, BOBCATSSS Association Board, based on the receiving application, decided BOBCATSSS 2024 to be in Coimbra, Portugal!

Main organizer of BOBCATSSS 2024 will be Department of Philosophy, Communication and Information (Information Section), Faculty of Arts and Humanities, University of Coimbra, Portugal.
