Call for Abstracts
Deadline for submissions: February 15, 2014
You are invited to submit an abstract for the forthcoming 36th Annual SALIS Conference hosted by the Center of Alcohol Studies (CAS ) at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.

Our theme this year is "Looking forward looking back: Reflections on the past and planning for the future". The conference organizers would like to encourage SALIS members to share their expertise through formal presentations, posters, panel discussions, workshops, or any innovative formats that would promote dialog to find solutions based on the vast knowledge in disseminating information accumulated in the past. We strongly believe that by reviewing past achievements and best practices, we can explore opportunities to translate them into our information age and can address new challenges with more success.
Please submit abstracts of 250 words or less no later than February 15, 2014 using the online form at: http://lib.adai.uw.edu/salis/2014/2014abstracts.html
In your abstract, please be sure to:
     1. briefly describe your topic, issue or idea;
     2. indicate your preferred format for your session
     3. explain how your proposed session relates to the conference theme

If you would like to discuss your idea with the conference host, Judit Ward (judit.ward@rutgers.edu), or the Executive Director of SALIS, Andrea Mitchell (amitchell@salis.org), please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We will be glad to assist you in any way we can.

Once you submit your abstract, you may return to the submission page at any time to edit your information.  You will receive an email confirmation within a few days of your final submission, and your information will be stored securely.
