2nd Call for Poster Sessions--2001 NASIG Conference Robb Waltner 29 Jan 2001 17:05 UTC

Please reply to: Robb Waltner <>

Dear Subscribers:

Please forgive the duplication of this message.  It has been posted to
several lists.

The NASIG Poster Session Task Force invites applications to present a
poster session at the 16th NASIG conference in San Antonio, TX, May 23-26,
2001! The theme of the conference is "NASIG 2001: A Serials Odyssey."
Poster sessions provide an opportunity to share innovative ideas and new
applications of technology.  They may present a report of a research
study, an analysis of a practical problem-solving effort, or a description
of an innovative program which may be of interest to the serials
community. In keeping with NASIG's tradition of non-commercialism, poster
sessions focusing solely on a commercial product will not be accepted.

Presenters are assigned a 8' (wide) x 4' (high) bulletin board on which to
display project documentation.  In general, text should be brief and
captioning should be in large and legible type.  Informative graphics such
as photos, charts and graphs are also attractive.  The material should be
presented in a logical sequence.  Laptop computers and visual display
devices may be used if they are provided by the presenter and operate on
battery power (no electrical support is available in the poster session
area).  These interactive sessions are scheduled for 1:15 to 2:15 on
Thursday, May 24th, 2001 during a break in other conference programs.
Presenters should be prepared to discuss their poster session topic
throughout the entire time allotted.  Handouts and business cards are
encouraged so attendees may take with them the presenters' main ideas and
contact information.  NASIG will assist with reproduction of handouts

To apply to present a poster session, submit a completed application and
250 word abstract to:
