A self organised unconference for anyone with an interest in services in islands, wherever they may be (including the big one with Cardiff, Edinburgh, and London on it); and for anyone with connections to islands, however tenuous. Also (in May 2012 and May 2015), an opportunity for visitors to Orkney to see puffins!

(There will also be an island visit, and/or bus tour in Orkney on Friday 29 May 2015, for govcampers travelling to Orkney who can arrive a day or 2 early.)

#IsleGC12 Venue and Remote Attendance Arrangements

We've had some thoughts about how to use the space available at Orkney College UHI, and how to ensure that remote attendees can follow all the sessions with as much prospect of seeing and hearing what is going on as an in-person participant will have.

Orkney College UHI, Kirkwall

What is listed below is subject to change, but initial discussions (with Orkney College UHI, University of the Highlands and Islands Learning and Information Services, Cisco and Orkney-based partners Magnetic North Films and Dragon History) suggest that the following will be feasible (all room numbers are Orkney College UHI numbers):
If you have any thoughts on this, or can offer to assist in making all this happen, please leave a comment below!
