Bridging the Spectrum:

The 12th Annual Symposium on Scholarship and Practice

Time:  Friday, February 14, 2020.

Place: Pryzbyla Student Center, Catholic University of America

The Symposium Planning Committee invites researchers, practitioners and students to submit proposals for the 2020 Bridging the Spectrum Symposium, a forum for sharing research findings, best practices, and works in progress in library and information science. The submission system is now open at http://cuaslis.org/openconf/author/submit.php

The Symposium will include three types of presentations: briefings, panels, and posters. Briefings are 15-minute descriptions of an innovative practice, project, or research activity. There will be morning and afternoon briefing sessions.

Authors can organize panels of speakers to present and discuss a theme or a topic. Panels are typically one hour in length.

Posters are exhibits describing a practice, project, or research activity. Posters will be viewable throughout the day, and there will be a lightning talk during which presenters will highlight their projects. In addition, poster presenters will attend a poster session to discuss their work with attendees.

The submission system is open at http://cuaslis.org/openconf/author/submit.php and the deadline for submission is November 4, 2019.

Proposal topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Community engagement and outreach, including marketing and advocacy for library and information services
  • Information services against misinformation and propaganda
  • New developments in information organization (linked data, semantic web, etc.)
  • Preservation and management of born-digital and digitized resources
  • Management and analysis of data and information
