WAAL 2020 Annual Conference
April 16-17, 2020

 Sheraton Milwaukee Brookfield Hotel



The WAAL 2020 Conference Planning Committee is accepting proposals for Posters, Lightning Talks, and (new this year!) Failure Confessions to be presented at WAAL 2020: Risk + Reward. The conference will take place at the Sheraton Milwaukee Brookfield Hotel, April 16 - 17, 2020.

Proposals are due by Friday, February 14, 2020.

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 and Best Visual Display in both the Professional and Student categories.
To submit a poster session proposal, please fill out the following 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. Your PowerPoint slides 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 the following form.

In the interest of time, we ask that there only be one presenter; however, other presenters can be available during the Q&A portion.

*New This Year!*

Failure Confessions:
Planned an event you were sure would be a blockbuster but no one came?  Added something awesome to the collection only to find no one checked it out?  We want to commiserate!  Present your "failure confession" in 5 minutes or less and let us know about a time you took a risk and it didn't go as expected. It's fun, educational, and cathartic!

To submit a Failure Confession, please fill out the following form.

Please send any questions to Paige Barreto at paige.barreto@uwp.edu

The planning committee looks forward to your submissions!
