The NASIG Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites Great
Ideas Showcase proposals for the 28th North American Serials
Interest Group conference in Buffalo, NY, June 6-9, 2013.
The theme of the conference is "Art of Information,
Architecture of Knowledge."
The first-ever Great Ideas Showcase (formerly Poster
Sessions) will be held on Friday, June 7, 2013, 2:25-3:25
p.m. Presenters must be available to discuss their
showcases during that time.
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 to showcase their idea as attendees mingle
amongst the tables. If requested a table top poster display
board will be provided. 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. However, as a matter of
NASIG policy, showcases should not be used as a venue to
promote or attack any product, service, or institution.
To propose a Great Idea, please use the online form:
Proposals must be received by 5pm PDT on Friday, March 29,
2013. Members of the Program Planning Committee will
evaluate abstracts, and presenters will be notified at the
beginning of April 2013.

Karen Davidson and Kelli Getz at [log in to unmask]
We look forward to seeing you in Buffalo!
