The NASIG Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites proposals for the
Great Ideas Showcase and the Snapshot Sessions for the 31st NASIG
conference in Albuquerque, NM, June 9 to 12. The theme of the
conference is "Embracing New Horizons”.
The Great Ideas Showcase and the Snapshot Sessions will be held
concurrently on Friday, June 10, 4:45 to 5:45 p.m. Presenters must be
available to discuss their showcases or present their snapshots during
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 (3.5’ x 7.5’) 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 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 serials 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.
