CFP: LabMan - University of North Texas, (Denton, Texas - June 2-4, 2015)

LabMan is seeking proposals for its 16th annual conference.
University of North Texas, (Denton, Texas - June 2-4, 2015)

LabMan history started with a group of Librarians wanting/seeking and then establishing a networking and best practices conference for individuals whom support public/academic computing service such as labs and other technology resources. Over the years the conference has grown and has a track dedicated to Library technology and support services. Sessions focus on a range of topics from technology support to resource management including your workforce.

The most impactful sessions come from you! There are so many new and exciting ways people are using various technologies to enhance education and library experiences. Help your peers make the most of their skills and tools by sharing your successes, lessons learned, and best practices!

We are looking for dynamic presentations that:
·         inform academic and/or library IT support personnel about proven practices
·         envision the leading edge of the profession
·         motivate the pursuit of excellence
·         share lessons learned and skills to bridge into the future

Although we are accepting presentation proposals on any topic, for this year’s conference we have selected a few general topics, or strands, which we hope to weave together into the overarching theme of Sustaining the Future:
·         Developing and Enhancing Your Career
·         The Future of Student Management
·         Technology Innovations and Implementation in Education
·         Technology Resources and Impact
If you don’t think you have enough material for a formal presentation, there are still opportunities available for you to share your knowledge and experiences:
·         Roundtable discussions
·         “Birds of a feather” discussions
·         Poster sessions
