Thursday, August 2, 2018
Call for Posters
The AIEF is sponsoring a poster session at the ARMA Live! conference in October to showcase individual or institutional research management or administrative best practices, highlight new developments, or display your research in the sector and share it with the information management (IM community).
Individual posters may describe applied or theoretical research that is completed or underway that pertains to IM. Submissions should focus on research or activity conducted within the previous year. Region or chapter posters may describe region or chapter activities, events, or other involvement with the IM profession. A single representative should coordinate the submission of each region or chapter proposal.
To submit a poster proposal, provide a 200-300 word essay that includes the following information: title, summary of the content, and a description of its contributions to the IM profession. For more details, or to submit, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by August 15. Selected presenters will get $500.
