Reminder: Poster Submission for the 8th Annual eScience Symposium

The Lamar Soutter Library at the University of Massachusetts Medical School invites you to submit a proposal for a poster presentation at the Eighth Annual University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian eScience Symposium, to be held on Wednesday, April 6th, 2016 at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, MA.


The theme of this year’s symposium is “Library Research Data Services: Putting Ideas into Action” and will focus on data services and the many practicing roles of librarians. Attendees will hear a keynote overview of data services, participate in breakout sessions featuring services that libraries are currently implementing and discuss the future of data science with practicing librarians and library school educators.


Every year we have a poster session! Participating in the symposium’s poster session is a great way to share news of your related research, projects, or programs with colleagues. This year we want to hear about how you are planning data services or the services you are engaged in. The poster session will feature a poster contest with awards to the Most Informative in Communicating e-Science Librarianship, Best Example of e-Science in Action, and Best Poster Overall. All librarians and library school students planning to attend the symposium are invited to submit proposals!


Please refer to poster submission instructions< >. The deadline for submitting a poster abstract is Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016 (just 2 months away!).


Submit your abstract today, save the date for April 6th, and stay tuned for registration opening in January!
