2012 Evergreen International Conference Program Solicitation

The 2012 Evergreen International Conference - Program Committee is soliciting program proposals for the 2012 Conference. The committee has decided to offer four tracks this year and has decided to name them in honor of the host city, Indianapolis, home of the Indy 500 car race:

  • Spectator (General)
  • Team owner (Administrative)
  • Driver (End-User)
  • Pit crew (Technical)

TIPS FOR PROSPECTIVE PRESENTERS: Based on the results of the 2012 Prospective Attendee Survey sent out to the community in August, the committee has compiled suggestions for requested programs in each user track. See the list below. The suggestions are intended to give prospective presenters some inspiration in crafting their proposal.

Prospective presenters are encouraged to contact possible co-presenters and submit a proposal together. Presenters are also encouraged to submit proposals if they are interested in presenting a 5-minute lightening talk.

INSTRUCTIONS: If you are interested in presenting, please return this form to Shauna Borger, Evergreen Indiana Coordinator, with a session proposal of a maximum of 200 words. There is some flexibility with program duration but in general, presenters should plan on having a 45-minute presentation.

The deadline to submit a proposal is November 30, 2011.

Please contact Shauna Borger with any questions.

Shauna Borger Indiana State Library, 140 North Senate Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46204 317-234-6536
