Day one presenter(s) should expect their session to be 45 minutes in length with 15 minutes for discussion. In addition, a new format will be introduced to the CoALA stage for the second day.

Day two presentations will feature a Pecha Kucha-style format, similar to "lightning rounds," with presentations that last approximately 7 minutes followed by 10-15 of discussion. Pecha Kucha is a presentation style where images and a succinct presentation will enlighten, inform, and encourage discussion. Think of TED Talks x 100. We encourage those dynamic presenters to challenge themselves and their audience by creating 20 images X 20 seconds. For more information about Pecha Kucha see http://www.pechakucha.org/

Submission abstract should range between 100-150 words in length. Programs relevant to the Summit might include: Instructional technologies; Accessibility initiatives (web design, mobile apps, disability services, RDA, FRBR); Digital divide; Devices in libraries (e.g. iPads, Kindles, laptops, etc.); Services/Outreach to diverse populations; Information fluency instruction/embedded librarianship; Collection content and formats; Special Collections & Archives; Social Networking for access, teaching, and learning; Partnerships with community organizations; New academic librarians (panel presentation of experienced librarians discussing expectations and duties in academic librarianship).

Proposals will be selected via blind peer review process.

DEADLINE: Proposal submissions are due by March 15 and notifications will be delivered by April 1.

Submit proposals using the online form: http://bit.ly/1dAg6IE
