Call for Poster Session Proposals (NASIG 2005)

Call for Poster Session Proposals (NASIG 2005)
Conference Dates: May 19-22, 2005
Conference Location: Minneapolis, MN
Deadline: March 25, 2005

The NASIG Program Planning Committee invites applications to present a poster session at the 20th NASIG conference in Minneapolis, MN, May 19-22, 2005! The theme of the conference is "Roaring Into Our Twenties."

Poster sessions provide an opportunity to share innovative ideas and new applications of technology. Poster sessions 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. In keeping with NASIG's tradition of non-commercialism, poster
sessions focusing solely on a commercial product will not be accepted.

Presenters are assigned a bulletin board on which to display project documentation. In general, text should be brief and captioning should be in large and legible type. Informative graphics such as photos, charts and graphs are also attractive. The material should be presented in a logical
sequence. No electrical support is available in the poster session area. Posters will be on display in the Hilton Minneapolis from 10:00 a.m. on Friday, May 20 until 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 21st. Presenters will be available both days at their displays during the morning break period.
Presenters should be prepared to discuss their poster session topic during this time. Handouts are STRONGLY encouraged so that attendees may take the presenters' main ideas home with them, and business cards are helpful for providing contact information.

To apply to present a poster session, submit a completed application and an abstract of no more than 250 words.

Deadline for submission: Applications must be received by Friday, March 25, 2005. Members of the Program Planning Committee's Sub-committee on Poster Sessions will evaluate abstracts, and presenters will be notified by April 8, 2005.
