The NASIG Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites Great Ideas Showcase proposals for the 28th North American Serials Interest Group conference in Buffalo, NY, June 6-9, 2013. The theme of the conference is “Art of Information, Architecture of Knowledge.”
The first-ever Great Ideas Showcase (formerly Poster Sessions) will be held on Friday, June 7, 2013, 2:25-3:25 p.m. Presenters must be available to discuss their showcases during that time.
The Great Ideas Showcase will provide an opportunity to share innovative ideas, new workflows, and new applications of technology in an interactive and informal setting. Great Ideas can be demonstrated in a variety of ways – posters, laptops, tablets, e-readers, etc. Participants will be given a table to showcase their idea as attendees mingle amongst the tables. If requested a table top poster display board will be provided. Proposals may present a report of a research study, an analysis of a practical problem-solving effort, or a description of an innovative program that may be of interest to the serials community. Proposals should name any particular products or services that are integral to the content of the showcase. However, as a matter of NASIG policy, showcases should not be used as a venue to promote or attack any product, service, or institution.
To propose a Great Idea, please use the online form.
Proposals must be received by 5pm PDT on Friday, March 29, 2013. Members of the Program Planning Committee will evaluate abstracts, and presenters will be notified at the beginning of April 2013.
Inquiries may be sent to the NASIG PPC Chair and Vice-Chair, Karen Davidson and Kelli Getz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you in Buffalo!
