The deadline for submissions for APLA 2015 is January 31st, 2015!
The winds of change are blowing! The APLA 2015 Conference Program Committee invites you to submit a proposal for presentation at the annual conference which will be held at Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador from June 10-13, 2015. This year’s conference theme is Powered by Change.
How has technology or social media changed your interactions with users? How have you handled changes in budget? How do we need to change to best provide services for our future users? How will RDA change our processes? How will Open Access change publishing? How has change affected your work or your library?
Tell us all about your experiences with change in either an oral presentation, lightning talk, or poster session. Oral presentation proposals may be submitted for either a 60 minute or 30 minute session (please allow approximately 10 minutes for questions). Lightning talks will be 10 minutes in length.
All you need to do is fill in the proposal form outlining your talk, your preferred session type, and your contact info by January 31, 2015.
We will try to contact all who submit by March 14, 2015. All presenters are responsible for their own accommodations, travel and registration. Proposals will be evaluated on originality, creativity, practicality, contribution to the field, and relevance to the conference theme.
