The Eastern New York Chapter of ACRL (ENY/ACRL) is calling for proposals for their upcoming virtual 2021 Spring Conference “2021 Vision for the future: Open and Accessible” on May 19th, 2021.
There will be four different session formats, please see the information below for each session format:
Poster Sessions: Poster sessions are an excellent opportunity to share your ideas, research findings, projects, solutions to problems, or best practices.
Lightning Rounds: Presentations for the lightning round are limited to 5 minutes. There will be time for a general question and answer period after all presenters have finished. The time frame is very strict, and presenters will be asked to keep within the five minutes.
Short Sessions: The conference is looking to hold at least one round of short sessions this year. Short sessions are composed of three twenty-minute sessions. The presenters will have the twenty minutes to present and answer questions, so how the time is spent is up to them. The time frame is very strict, and presenters will be asked to keep within the twenty minutes.
Breakout Sessions: In addition to lightning rounds and poster sessions, this year we are also offering ENY/ACRL members a chance to submit proposals to lead breakout sessions. Breakout session proposals should cover 45 minutes, can include 1-3 presenters, and should incorporate a combination of introduction/presentation and the facilitation of an interactive group discussion or activity. Topics that address an aspect of the conference theme will be given preference in the selection process. A limited number of breakout session proposals will be accepted due to time and tech constraints of the conference.

Deadline for all proposals is March 20th, 2021. Presenters will be notified of acceptance by April 2nd, 2021.
