24x7 Presentations (24 slides in 7 minutes)

We welcome proposals of less than 500 words for 7-minute presentations comprising no more than 24 slides. Similar to Pecha Kuchas or Lightning Talks, these 24x7 presentations will be grouped into blocks based on conference themes, with each block followed by a moderated discussion / question and answer session involving the audience and whole block of presenters. This forum will provide conference goers with a fast-paced survey of like work across many institutions, and presenters the chance to disseminate their work in more depth and context than a traditional poster.

Posters

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 of less than 500 words 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.
