Open Call for NASIG Conference Proceedings Recorders

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.
