2011 AALL Meeting Program Planning for AALL 2012

Page history last edited by Meg Kribble 12 years, 9 months ago

2011 planning for AALL 2012 in Boston


Theme:  Learn connect grow, but sessions will also be categorized according to competencies-based tracks

Program Planning Meeting at AALL 2011: Sunday July 25, 5:30-6:30pm in PCC Room 106B

All CS-SIS members welcome! If you can't attend but have an idea for a CS-sponsored program, please email Meg Kribble, mkribble AT law.harvard.edu.

Program Submission Deadline:  Thursday September 15, 2011, 11:59pm



AALL Programs--Blocks include 90-minute, 75-minute, 60-minute, 45-minute, and 30-minute programs. There are 66 programs total, but only 50 are "free slots" which are open for general program submissions.  Most of the rest are reserved for individual SIS top choices, but note that CS-SIS will also get one of those slots. Flexibility on time slots can be helpful for getting program accepted, so if your program might work in different blocks, be sure to mention that in the additional notes field.


AALL Workshops--normally one-half day or a full day. Workshops are self-sustaining, so fees must be charged for all expenses. AALL will offer a maximum of 4 workshops for next year's meeting.


CS-SIS Programs and Roundtables - We can also sponsor programs and roundtables but we must pay all expenses. These are usually programs that AMPC did not select.
