NASIG Annual Conference: Call for Proposals

NASIG 24th Annual Conference: Riding the Rapids Through a Mountain of Change
Asheville, North Carolina, June 4-7, 2009

The 2009 Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites proposals and/or program ideas for pre-conference, vision, strategy, and tactics sessions. The Program Planners are specifically interested in hearing from publishers, vendors, librarians, and others in the field of serials and electronic resources about issues relating to scholarly communication, licensing, and publishing. Proposals based on both descriptive and experimental research findings are especially welcome.

The Program Planning Committee will review all submitted proposals for their content, timeliness, and reserves the right to combine, blend, or refocus proposals to maximize their relevance and to avoid duplication.

This Call for Proposals will close on September 5, 2008. Presentations must be original and not previously presented at other conferences. The Programming Planning Committee hopes to notify applicants by the end of the calendar year, but no earlier than December 1, 2008, as to the status of proposals.

Inquiries may be sent to the PPC co-chairs, Erika Ripley and Morag Boyd at: For additional details and to suggest a proposal or idea, click here.
