The NASIG Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites proposals
for the Great Ideas Showcase and the Snapshot Sessions for
the 30th North American Serials Interest Group conference in
Washington, DC, May 27-31. The theme of the conference is
"NASIG at 30: Building the Digital Future."
The Great Ideas Showcase and the Snapshot Sessions will be
held concurrently on Thursday, May 28, 2015, 4:30-5:30 p.m.
Presenters must be available to discuss their showcases or
present their snapshots 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 or poster board (4’ x 8’) to showcase their idea
to attendees, depending on their need.
The Snapshot Sessions will consist of up to eight 5-minute
presentations with a focus on an idea, project, 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 serials 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
