Call for Student Snapshot Sessions for 2018 NASIG Annual Conference

(via NASIG)

The NASIG Student Outreach Committee (SOC) invites proposals for the Great Ideas Showcase and the Student Snapshot Sessions for the 33rd NASIG 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 Friday, June 8, from 3:45 to 4:45 p.m., and the Snapshot Sessions will be held Saturday, June 9, from 4:45 to 5:45 p.m. 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 Student Snapshot Sessions will consist of up to eight 5-minute presentations with a focus on an idea, project, workflow, etc.  Student Snapshot Sessions provide an excellent introduction to professional presentations and look great on resumes!

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 NASIG community. Proposals should name any particular products or services that are integral to the content of the showcase or snapshot. However, as a matter of NASIG policy, showcases and snapshots should not be used as a venue to promote or attack any product, service, or institution.
