Call for Posters & Lighting Talks

The WAAL 2017 Conference Planning Committee is currently accepting proposals for posters and Lightning Talks to be presented at Driving Change: WAAL 2017. The conference will take place at the Osthoff Resort in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, April 20 – 21, 2017. Proposals are due by Friday, February 10, 2017.


Poster Sessions:

Poster session proposals are welcome from any person or organization who has ideas to present to Wisconsin's academic library community.

All poster presenters will be assigned a skirted table space. No other equipment will be provided. Wireless internet access will be available.

Awards will be given for Best Content, Best Visual Display, and Best Student Poster. To submit a poster session proposal, please fill out the this form.


Lightning Talks:

Don’t think you have enough information for a poster or a presentation? The Planning Committee would like to give everyone the opportunity to present topics, no matter how small!

Each presenter will have 5 minutes to speak on their topic. You can present PowerPoint slides, which will be gathered ahead of time and presented as one continuous presentation. There will be an Emcee coordinating the talk and delegating time.

To submit a Lightning Talk proposal, please fill out this form.

In the interest of time, we ask that there only be one presenter, however other presenters can be available during the Questions portion. Please send any questions to Paige Barreto at paige.barreto@uwp.edu.

The planning committee looks forward to your submissions!
