Still time to submit a proposal for the Great Ideas Showcase and the Snapshot Sessions for the 2018 NASIG Annual Conference in Atlanta, GA, June 8 to 11! The theme of the conference is “Transforming the Information Community.”
The Great Ideas Showcase will be held on Saturday from 5-6pm, and the Snapshot Sessions will be held on Sunday from 2-3pm. Presenters must be available to discuss their showcases or present their snapshots 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 or poster board (4’ x 6’) to showcase their idea to attendees, depending on their need.
The Snapshot Sessions will consist of up to eight 5-minute presentations with a focus on an idea, project, workflow, etc. If you’ve always wanted to speak at NASIG, but haven’t felt like you had enough to say for a full session, this is a great opportunity for you.
Proposals must be received by 5pm EST on Friday, March 30, 2018. Members of the Program Planning Committee will evaluate abstracts, and presenters will be notified of the status of their proposal by mid-April. (Note: Presenters for the Great Ideas Showcase or Snapshot Sessions do not qualify for a registration discount. Presenters must be registered for either the full conference or for Friday single day registration.)
Inquiries may be sent to the NASIG PPC Chair and Vice-Chair, Violeta Ilik and Maria Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
