24x7 Presentations

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.

  • Title
  • Abstract (a brief description of the panel topic(s) in less than 500 words)

Posters will be featured at the conference reception and through a “Minute Madness” session, during which presenters will give a 60-second summary of each poster.

In your poster proposal, please include an abstract of 500 words or less detailing the main theme(s) of your poster.

Workshops, Tutorials, and Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions

These events provide venues for in-depth instruction in important areas of digital library practice (workshops), demonstrations of new or useful tools and technologies (tutorials), and gatherings of interested attendees to engage in discussion about a particular topic (birds-of-a-feather sessions). Events in this category can range from 1 to 4 hours. 

Please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words that outlines the purpose and content of your workshop, tutorial, demonstration, or birds of a feather session. Also provide as much information as possible regarding your needs (including audio-visual needs) for the session. 

Submissions for workshops, tutorials, demos and "birds of a feather" sessions will be judged on the merits of the proposals and the space and time available at the conference.

TxDHC Presentation

Presentations for the TxDHC Mini-Conference will feature a speaker or team of speakers presenting their research for 15 minutes, followed by a discussion or hands-on experimentation. The presentation should raise key concepts and questions that can serve as a springboard for exploration during the rest of the hour.
