We are pleased to accept proposals for the following:

SLIG Tech Day, 2019

Deadline Extended: June 30, 2018

SLIG will hold its second annual SLIG Tech Day on Saturday, January 19, 2019 – the Saturday that follows SLIG and runs prior to the new SLIG Academy. Proposals will be accepted for half-day (3.5 hour) workshops and 1.5 hour classes on technology-related topics that will enhance participant research and documentation.

  • Workshops are intended to provide hands-on experience and should be instructed at a pace that allows the majority of students to follow along easily; participants will be required to bring their own laptops; internet and electricity will be provided.
  • Classes may be instructional or demonstrative in nature and should be instructed at a lecture pace.

Interested parties may submit up to six proposals for consideration; each should include learning objectives, pre-requisites, and equipment requirements beyond those mentioned above. Presenters should assume students will have intermediate to advanced research skills; the class/workshop description should describe the level of technical skill or experience expected.

Audio-visual equipment is provided; presenters should provide their own laptop, HDMI connectors, and assure all video and images are used with permission. Detailed handouts are required. Compensaton $250 per class, $600 per workshop, includes lab assistance and co-presenters unless otherwise agreed. 

Please note that Tech Day will run concurrently with the 5th Annual SLIG Colloquium during morning hours. If you plan to also submit a paper or attend the colloquium, please note this on your proposal.
