Spring 2019 Conference Call for Proposals

The Eastern New York Chapter of ACRL (ENY/ACRL) is pleased to invite presenters to submit proposals for the upcoming 2019 Spring Conference “Developing the Professional, Evolving our Profession.” There will be three different session formats for which interested persons may submit proposals: poster sessions, lightning rounds, and breakout sessions. Please see the information below for each session format.

Poster Sessions

Poster sessions are an excellent opportunity to share your ideas, research findings, projects, solutions to problems, or best practices.  Posters will be on display throughout the day and presenters should be available to discuss their topics during two thirty-minute time slots.

Lightning Rounds

Presentations for the lightning round are limited to 5 minutes. There will be time for a general question and answer period after all presenters have finished.

Breakout Sessions

In addition to lightning rounds and poster sessions, this year we are also offering ENY/ACRL members a chance to submit proposals to lead breakout sessions.  Breakout session proposals should cover 45 minutes, can include 1-3 presenters, and should incorporate a combination of introduction/presentation and the facilitation of an interactive group discussion or activity. Topics that address an aspect of the conference theme will be given preference in the selection process.
