CFP - ACA Conference

Call for Poster Submissions
2012 ACA Conference
³In Search of Archival Gold²
Thursday, June 7th 2012

High Country Inn
Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada

The ACA 2012 Program Committee is pleased to invite submissions of abstracts
for poster presentations. Topics relating to the 2012 conference theme ³In
Search of Archival Gold² are especially encouraged, though other topics
addressing any aspect of archives and/or records management will be
considered. For more information on conference theme, visit the ACA website

A poster presentation is one in which information is summarized using texts
and images, and presented in a poster format. This is an excellent
opportunity to highlight your repository, a digitization project, a research
project or other initiative, and share your work with your colleagues from
around the country.

The posters will be on display, with trade show exhibits, at the High
Country Inn on Thursday, June 7th 2012, during the afternoon from 3 to 5 pm.
Up to 12 poster presentations will be selected by the Program Committee for
display. ACA reserves the right to cancel the posters in the event that
insufficient submissions are received

A poster should be 48² wide (121 cm), and up to 48² high (121 cm), and can
either be professionally printed or created by hand. ACA provides the
posters display stands (Afix display units,
). Successful applicants will receive additional
detailed information about these display units with poster production
recommendations, including paper type.

Please include the following in your submission:

* Your name, telephone number, postal address and e-mail address; and
* The title and abstract of your poster presentation (max 250 words).

We ask that you limit yourself to only one poster per submission.

The deadline for submissions is: Monday, January 16th, 2012
