Propose a Project Briefing
for the CNI Spring 2014 Membership Meeting
DEADLINE: FEB. 14, 2014
About the Briefings
Project Briefings (presentations) are the heart of every membership meeting. A limited number of project briefings are accepted. These briefings address state-of-the-art developments and issues of interest to the membership, as outlined in each year’s Program Plan. Scholarly communication, e-research, innovations in teaching and learning, and technology infrastructure are topics that consistently engage CNI members’ interests.
Project Briefings are breakouts that allow participants to interact informally about projects, initiatives, and ideas of their own choosing. Presenters may be assigned a 45-minute or one-hour time slot, at the discretion of meeting organizers.
The Briefings are usually attended by 25-75 people. Attendees include senior IT and library administrators, publishing executives, government officials, and others with a high level of interest in and understanding of networking information issues.
The Briefings are intended to provide information about a project’s goals, progress, and lessons learned, but they may also involve demonstrations. Issue-oriented briefings include presentation of background information on a “hot topic” and more time for general discussion with the audience.
Each Briefing should include at least twenty minutes for general discussion.
NOTE: Handouts will NOT BE INCLUDED in program books. Speakers wishing to make handouts available to meeting attendees are invited to bring them to breakout sessions for distribution at that time; alternatively, presenters may contact conference coordinator Jacqueline (Jackie) Eudell at <firstname.lastname@example.org> to arrange for prior delivery of bulk items.
