Call for Posters to be viewable from Monday 12th October

The Program Committee for Samvera Connect 2020 On-line is inviting contributions for the conference "virtual poster session".  All appropriate submissions will be accepted. Please remember, when designing your "poster", that this will not be an in-person event and that the image will be viewed on screens varying in size from a large desktop version to a small tablet or even phone - please feel free to explore formats that you think would work well.  In addition to the image, we invite you to submit a short set of notes about it, and/or a short audio/video description.  The image should be supplied as a jpg file (preferably) or as a pdf.  The descriptive material can be a file or a link.  The image will be loaded to, and accessed from, Samvera's repository which operates under a CC-BY license.

The posters and descriptive material will be made available on-line from Monday 12th October.  In order to generate discussion, there will be a Slack channel devoted to the posters but, in consultation with the authors, we will also set up for each one a 30-minute slot (using Zoom or similar) during the days Monday 19th - Wednesday 21st October between 11:00am and 2:00pm ET for conversation about it.  We shall use the conference Sched site (soon to be at sc2020.sched.com) to communicate the Zoom details.

Please indicate your intention to submit a poster by filling in the form here

The closing date for submission of files will be Wednesday 7th October.
