The 2010 Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites proposals
and/or program ideas for pre-conference, vision, strategy,
and tactics sessions. The Program Planners are interested in
hearing from publishers, vendors, librarians, and others in
the field of serials and electronic resources about issues
relating to scholarly communication, publishing, licensing,
and cataloging.

Please keep in mind the following:

* The Program Planning Committee will review all submitted
proposals for their content and timeliness.
* PPC may work with potential presenters to blend or refocus
proposals to maximize their relevance to attendees and avoid
* Proposals based on descriptive and experimental research
findings are encouraged.
* Time management issues generally limit each session to two
speakers. Panels of four (4) or more speakers must be
discussed in advance with the PPC (
* Proposals may be suggested as one type of session and/or
format and ultimately be accepted as any one of the other
types of sessions or formats; this decision is the purview
of the Program Planning Committee.
* Vision and Strategy speakers presenting original content
are required to produce a written paper for the conference
* NASIG has a reimbursement policy for conference speakers
whose organizations do not cover expenses. Details about
reimbursement are available on the NASIG website.
