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.
