BOBCATSSS is an annual symposium organised by students at a number of universities in Europe. It takes place under the auspices of EUCLID (European Association for Library and Information Education and Research) and deals with themes from library and information science. Every year it is organized, managed and provided with content by students from an Eastern and Western European university. The universities have in common that they educate in the field of Library and Information sciences. Target groups of the BOBCATSSS-Symposiums are information specialists, students, professors in the field of Library and Information Education and Research and employees of libraries and information departments.

The name BOBCATSSS is an acronym and describes the university network. The letters stand for the first letters of the cities of the universities that initiated the BOBCATSSS symposium in 1993: Budapest, Oslo, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Tampere, Stuttgart, Szombathely and Sheffield. During the last years further members from Borås, Riga, Kharkiv, Moscow, Tallinn, Toru, Warsaw, Sofia, Ljubljana, Krak. This years conference is co-organised by the University of Parma, Italy  & Manchester Metropolitan University, UK.

It is unique that teams of students, supervised by academics, plan and realise both the content and the management of the symposium as a part of their studies. The students are responsible for every aspect of arranging the conference, from marketing and financing to logistics and abstract and paper management. Due to this they profit a lot by border crossing and teamwork with other European countries.
