NASIG Call for Proposals - Great Ideas Showcase & Snapshots Sessions

The NASIG Program Planning Committee invites proposals for the Great Ideas Showcase and the Snapshots Session for the 39th Annual Conference, to be held June 3-7, 2024 in Spokane, Washington.

We are currently seeking in-person presentations. The NASIG Conference presenters and attendees will be expected to follow hotel Covid safety protocols.

 The Snapshots Sessions will be held on Tuesday June 4, 2024 4 - 5:30 PM and the Great Ideas Showcase will be held on Wednesday June 5.  Presenters must be available to discuss their showcases or present their snapshots during that time, in person.

 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 will be presented as posters. Participants will be given a poster board to showcase their idea to attendees.

 The Snapshots Session will consist of up to eight 5-minute presentations with a focus on an idea, projects, 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 NASIG 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.

Submit your Great Ideas Showcase or Snapshots Session proposal here.

Proposals must be received by 5PM, Tuesday March 22, 2024. Members of the Program Planning Committee will evaluate submissions, and presenters will be notified of the status of their proposal by the beginning of April.

NOTE: Presenters for the Great Ideas Showcase or Snapshots Sessions do not qualify for a registration discount. Presenters must be registered for either the full conference or for the one-day registration.

Inquiries may be sent to the NASIG Program Planning Committee co-chairs Jenn Zuccaro & Michelle Turvey-Welch at
