Proposals are now being accepted for project briefings to be presented during CNI’s Fall 2021 Membership Meeting. At this time, we expect to hold BOTH a virtual event and an in-person event, each independently of one another, and designed to complement each other. The virtual event will take place online Dec. 6-9; the in-person event will take place Dec. 13-14 in Washington, DC, at the JW Marriott Hotel.
Anyone may propose a project briefing, including groups/individuals from non-member institutions and organizations.
Live (synchronous) time slots will be reserved for topics that would particularly benefit from interactive discussion. Speakers may request to present a live (synchronous) project briefing (either virtually Dec. 6-9 or in-person Dec. 13-14), though a very small number of proposals will be selected for synchronous or in-person presentation; the great majority of project briefings will be pre-recorded. If the in-person event shifts to virtual due to public health considerations, in-person project briefings scheduled for Dec. 13-14 will move to virtual synchronous sessions on Dec. 13-15. Once accepted, speakers who are selected for live sessions will be contacted regarding the schedule.
We strongly urge all those presenting synchronous project briefings (virtual or in person) grant CNI permission to record and make their session subsequently available.
Project briefings focus on a timely topic or on a specific institutional/organizational project related to digital information; they can also explore parallel developments across institutions. Briefings address state-of-the-art developments and issues of interest to the membership, as have been outlined in CNI’s Program Plan (https://www.cni.org/program) and recent Executive Roundtable reports: (https://www.cni.org/tag/executive-roundtable-report). Management of data, digital content, and institutional information resources; digital preservation; innovations in teaching and learning; and infrastructure to support research are topics that consistently engage CNI members’ interests.
A limited number of project briefings will be accepted.
Proposals may be submitted via online form:
Deadline for submissions is October 11, 2021
More information, including a preliminary schedule-at-a-glance, is at https://www.cni.org/mm/fall-2021.
