The Association of Moving Image Archivists conference committee is asking for proposal submissions for sessions, posters, and workshops for the AMIA Spring 2021 online conference, which is scheduled for April 13-16.
The association held its first online conference last November and organizers say that AMIA Spring 2021 will offer an opportunity for continuing discussions and new conversations affecting the field.
“The Conference Committee works to present a broad-based program that speaks to a wide range of attendees with a balance of theory and practice, inviting new ideas and concepts that stimulate additional interest, involvement, and educational benefit,” organizers said. “In keeping with ongoing membership discussions about diversity and inclusion, we urge proposers to use AMIA Conference sessions as an opportunity to include new voices and offer diverse viewpoints.”
Potential participants are encouraged to read the Proposal Information and the Call for Proposals Notes and FAQ, which explain the review process and offers information and tips on what the reviewers and the Conference Committee consider in the proposal process. They can also contact the Proposal Help Desk with any questions about the proposal process.
The Committee has created a Google spreadsheet to connect individuals seeking ideas and/or collaborators for session and workshop proposals. The spreadsheet is provided as a means of communication only: the Committee does not monitor the document and it is not part of the official submission process.
