Call for Posters

ARLIS/NA+VRA 2016 Joint Conference Call for Posters

Deadline for submissions is November 1, 2015.

The Program Committee is now accepting proposals for Poster Sessions for the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) and Visual Resources Association (VRA) Joint Conference, Natural Connections, to be held March 8-12, 2016, in Seattle, Washington.

Participants in the Poster Session present a professional topic both graphically and through direct interaction with conference attendees. This format encourages one-on-one discussions and self-paced viewing. Posters depict workplace initiatives, research works in process, and other library/visual resource topics of contemporary interest.

Submit your poster proposal via our online submission form.

A poster consists of a visual display accompanied by pertinent handouts;The visual poster display can take any form or look, provided it is confined to the 30” x 42” area. Creating the opportunity for conversation is the main goal of the poster session.

Beyond the display panels and certain basic mounting supplies, poster presenters will be required to bring all materials and mount their own display at the designated time. Full details will be provided in December, following selection and confirmation of poster presenters. Successful applicants will be notified by November 15, 2015.
