Deadline extended to May 6 for 2019 NASIG Great Ideas Showcase
The NASIG Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites proposals for the Great Ideas Showcase and the Snapshot Sessions for the [ 34th NASIG Annual Conference ]( http://www.nasig.org/site_page.cfm?pk_association_webpage_menu=700&pk_association_webpage=15020 ) in Pittsburgh, PA, June 5 to 8. The theme of the conference is “Building Bridges.”
The Great Ideas Showcase will be held on Thursday, June 6, from 5:00-6:00 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 or poster board (4’ x 6’) to showcase their idea to attendees, depending on their need.
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.
