Call for Proposals - True North Science Boot Camp 2018

Call for Proposals - True North Science Boot Camp 2018

Call for Proposals from Librarians

The 2018 True North Science Bootcamp will be held from Wednesday, May 23 to Friday, May 25, 2018, at both Concordia and McGill Universities, and will cover the themes of smart cities and artificial intelligence. This annual event brings together librarians and STEM researchers for three days of exciting science lectures and social events, and provides opportunities for librarians to learn more about science and the research process, discuss best practices, and share ideas and experiences.

This year, we want to include the innovative work of STEM librarians as part of the broader program. We therefore invite proposals from colleagues wishing to share interesting work they are conducting on any aspect of STEM librarianship. Presentations should be brief, approximately 20 minutes, and will be followed by a question period. There is no requirement that librarian presentations necessarily conform to the conference theme.

Submission deadline: Monday, February 12, 2018, 9 a.m.
