ALISE 2023 Annual Conference Call for Proposals Is Now Open!

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.

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.

See the full Call for Proposals here. Deadline to Submit: March 17, 2023
