Call for Proposals – True North Science Boot Camp 2019

Call for Proposals – True North Science Boot Camp 2019

December 12, 2018

The 2019 True North Science Boot Camp will be held from Wednesday, May 29 to Friday, May 31, 2019, at the University of Ottawa, and will cover the themes the makerspace movement and community engagement in science and engineering. This annual event brings together librarians and STEM researchers for three days of exciting science lectures and social events, and provides opportunities for librarians to learn more about science and the research process, discuss best practices, and share ideas and experiences.

As with last year, we want to include the innovative work of STEM librarians as part of the broader program. We therefore invite proposals from colleagues wishing to share interesting work they are conducting on any aspect of STEM librarianship. Presentations should be brief, approximately 20 minutes, and will be followed by a question period. There is no requirement that librarian presentations necessarily conform to the conference theme.

Submission deadline: Monday, February 4, 2019, 5 PM
