Submit program proposals to WAAL today
The Wisconsin Association of Academic Libraries (WAAL) Conference Planning Committee invites session proposals for the 2022 WAAL conference, “Open Minds, Open Doors.” The conference will be held Wednesday, April 20 through Friday, April 22 at the Sheraton Milwaukee Brookfield Hotel in Brookfield.
Proposals for presentations, panels, and workshops are all welcome. Plan for presentations to last for 50 minutes, including Q&A. We look forward to proposals that will inspire change and highlight new opportunities, diverse experiences, and creative thinking. WAAL welcomes proposals from any area of libraries, archives, museums and cultural organizations, or higher education. Program proposals are due TODAY, February 4.
Submit your program proposal today.
The committee is also accepting proposals for posters and lightning talks (due February 25):
Submit a poster session or lightning talk proposal here.
- Poster presentations must be digital (i.e., an image, a set of slides, a video) when submitted. If desired, presenters may also print their poster and bring it to the conference to be displayed in the conference center. Awards will be presented for Best Content and Best Visual Display.
- Lightning talks are for those who may not have enough information for a poster or a presentation. The committee would like to give everyone the opportunity to present topics, no matter how small! Each presenter should plan to speak for 5 minutes on their topic in a recorded video that will be posted to the WAAL conference website.
