Calling all NASIG Conference Attendees!
The Conference Proceeding editors are seeking volunteers to write reports of sessions at this year’s annual conference in Washington, DC, May 27-31, 2015. Conference recorders are asked to attend specific sessions, take notes and work with the presenters to produce a readable, comprehensive account. (Sessions needing recorders are for May 28-30.) For vision sessions, recorders may be asked to listen to a recording of a presentation and synthesize the transcription with their notes into a report for publication. For pre-conferences, recorders are asked to summarize half-day or full-day sessions.
If you have the ability to write clear, organized prose and are able to submit a report by July 31, 2015, please consider this opportunity to make a valuable contribution to the profession and to NASIG. Recorders will work under the general direction of the guest editors and the Author Guidelines. A License to Publish form is required. The License to Publish form and the Author Guidelines are on the NASIG Conference Proceedings Editors page: http://www.nasig.org/site_page.cfm?pk_association_webpage_menu=1346&pk_association_webpage=3881.
To apply, complete the online application by Friday, May 1, 2015.
Thank you very much for considering to volunteer as a recorder.
Regards from your Conference Proceedings editors,
