The Symposium Planning Committee invites researchers, practitioners and students to submit proposals for the 2020 Bridging the Spectrum Symposium, a forum for sharing research findings, best practices, and works in progress in library and information science. The submission system is now open at http://cuaslis.org/openconf/author/submit.php
The Symposium will include three types of presentations: briefings, panels, and posters. Briefings are 15-minute descriptions of an innovative practice, project, or research activity. There will be morning and afternoon briefing sessions.
Authors can organize panels of speakers to present and discuss a theme or a topic. Panels are typically one hour in length.
Posters are exhibits describing a practice, project, or research activity. Posters will be viewable throughout the day, and there will be a lightning talk during which presenters will highlight their projects. In addition, poster presenters will attend a poster session to discuss their work with attendees.
The submission system is open at cuaslis.org/openconf/author/submit.php and the deadline for submission is October 23, 2019…”
