Questions about presentation submissions may be sent to the Program Co-Chairs, Stephanie Tulley, Stephanie Labou, and Louise Corti, at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Program Committee welcomes proposals for the following formats:
Typically this format is a 15-minute talk. It can be accompanied by a written paper but it is not required. If your individual proposal is accepted, you will be grouped into an appropriate session with similar presentations.
You may propose an entire session (90-120 minutes) with a minimum of three speakers to “deep dive “into a specific resource or concept. The session proposal can take a variety of forms, e.g., a set of three to four presentations, a discussion panel, a tutorial (with less substance than a pre-conference workshop), a discussion with the audience, etc. If accepted, the person who proposed the session becomes the session organizer and is responsible for securing speakers and a chair. Please note: the names of all speakers and the moderator must be included in the proposal.
Presenters are required to submit an original research paper in advance of the conference and present and discuss its findings at the conference. We will select submissions based on proposals, and the authors of accepted proposals are required to submit their final and complete papers by March 20, 2020. All papers will be eligible for publication consideration in an edition of IASSIST Quarterly. In addition, one paper will be selected as best paper with a prize of one free registration for a future IASSIST conference.
Posters or Demonstration
Proposals in this category should identify the message being conveyed in the poster or the demonstration.
A lightning talk is a short, highly visual presentation. Presentations in this category are timed, and speakers are restricted to 5 minutes total. Presentations should have a maximum of 15 slides, but there is no restriction on how many minutes you stay on each slide or the exact format of the presentation as long as you stay within the strict time limit. These are not your typical conference presentations.
Session formats are not limited to the ideas above; session organizers are welcome to suggest other formats. We will consider interactive formats that encourage audience participation.
NOTE: When submitting you will be required to select one of the proposal formats above, but it is possible that your submission may be accepted on the condition of adapting it to another format (e.g., an individual presentation proposal might be accepted if you are willing to adapt it to a poster or a Lightning Talk). If this is the case, you will be given the choice to accept this format change or to decline being in the conference program when notified of its acceptance.
