Track Policies


Proposals for panel sessions at TCDL 2013 are encouraged. Panel sessions should address a single topic from multiple perspectives and should engage the audience for a full 80-minute session.  Submissions for panel sessions should include a one-page proposal that provides the following details:

  • title
  • abstract (a brief description of the panel topic(s))
  • panelists' information (i.e., name, title, institution, and email address for each panel participant and identify the moderator)

Checked Open Submissions Checked Peer Reviewed


Submissions are encouraged for a special session for posters that report on emerging issues, works-in-progress, or innovative solutions. In addition to displaying their posters at the conference site, poster presenters will participate in a "Minute Madness" session, during which presenters for each poster will give a 60-second summary of the poster's main points.

In your poster proposal, please include an abstract detailing the main theme(s) of your poster.

Easels will be available at the conference site, and foam board will be made available upon request. TCDL will be unable to provide power for multimedia displays. Additional details about poster requirements will be provided following acceptance.
