WIP and Doctoral Poster Guidelines:
As you create your poster, please be aware of the available display dimensions:

We recommend nothing smaller than 2’ x 3’ (24’’ x 36’’). To promote a fair contest, we will enforce a maximum poster size of 3.5’ x 3.5’ (42’’ x 42’’). You will share a poster board with another presenter so please be respectful of space.

*Please note: a PDF copy of your poster is NOT required to be submitted prior to the start of the- conference.

The theme of the ALISE 2023 Conference, “Bridge the Gap: Teaching, Learning, Practice, and Competencies,” explores the linkage between professional and educational practice of LIS programs or iSchool curricula. In identifying the synergy and gaps between professional competencies and LIS pedagogy and curricula, we hope to build a dialogue between practitioners and LIS educators and provide a platform for creating timely, relevant, and valuable education for our students. Proposals pertaining to the wide spectrum of LIS education, including those focusing on information technology or data sciences, are welcome.


Attention Paper and Panel Submitters!

New This Year: To encourage more research papers and panel proposals, ALISE welcomes submissions beyond the conference theme.  Submissions will not be reviewed based on the conference theme.
