Preparing a Session on the Future of Library Collection Development during LSC Annual Conference Next Month in Shanghai

I am preparing a session jointly organized by the Committee for Resource Development and Sharing of the Library Society of China and the Foreign Acquisitions & Cataloging Department of the National Library of China during the Annual Conference of the Library Society of China, Shanghai, November 7-8, 2013.
I don't want to follow the old way to arrange call-for-paper writers to speak. Instead, I would like to arrange three foreign publishers to talk about the future of publishing industry and three Chinese library scholars to talk about the challenges faced by libraries, and ask the six speaks to have panel discussions.
Since it is the first time for us to arrange such a session during LSC annual conference, we have to solve many problems, such as simultaneous interpretation and bilingual PPTs.
