Call for Proposals: NASIG 26th Annual Conference publicist 18 Aug 2010 13:35 UTC

NASIG 26th Annual Conference

Gateway to Collaboration

June 2-5, 2011

St. Louis, Missouri

The 2011 Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites proposals
for preconference, 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, and resource
acquisition, management, and discovery. Proposals based on
emerging trends, case studies, and descriptive and
experimental research findings are encouraged.

To propose a program or idea, please use the online form
[]. This Call for
Proposals will close on September 17, 2010.

Please note the following:

    * The Program Planning Committee reviews all submitted
proposals and hopes to notify applicants of the status of
their proposals in December 2010.

    * The Program Planning Committee welcomes proposals that
are still in the formative stages, and may work with
potential presenters to focus their proposals further.

    * Proposals should name any particular products or
services that are integral to the content of the
presentation. However, as a matter of NASIG policy, programs
should not be used as a venue to promote or attack any
product, service, or institution.

    * Time management issues generally limit each session to
two speakers for Tactics sessions or three speakers for
Strategy sessions. Panels of four (4) or more speakers must
be discussed in advance with the Program Planning Committee

    * Proposals may be accepted as a different type of
session than was originally suggested; this decision is the
purview of the Program Planning Committee.

    * NASIG has a reimbursement policy for conference
speakers whose organizations do not cover expenses.

Inquiries may be sent to the PPC co-chairs, Anne Mitchell
and Michael Hanson, at:
