Subject: CNI Fall 2023 Call for Proposals
Date: Thu, 07 Sep 2023 12:09:07 -0400

Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) invites project briefing proposals for the Fall 2023 Membership Meeting (December 11–12), which will be held at the JW Marriott in Washington, DC.


Submit your proposal via online form:


The submission deadline is Tuesday, October 10, 2023

Project briefings (presentations) address state-of-the-art developments, issues of interest to the membership, a timely topic, or a specific project related to networked information content and technologies, particularly those that are cross-institutional or of broad interest to the community. Project briefings include information about a project’s goals, progress, and lessons learned, time for discussion, and perhaps demonstrations. Issue-oriented briefings include background information on a CNI-related topic and more time for general discussion with the audience.

Keep in Mind:

  • Anyone may propose a project briefing: you need not be affiliated with a member organization to propose a session. 
  • The meeting will be held entirely in person; presenters are expected to register and speak in person except in very unusual circumstances. Speakers are invited to attend the entire meeting (there is no registration fee), though they (or their organizations) are responsible for their own expenses.
  • Project briefings are typically 30-minute to one-hour sessions. We also accept proposals for lightning round presentations (limited to five minutes, one presenter)
  • We intend to record all sessions and to make the videos openly available after the meeting. In some exceptional cases, we may accept a session that is not recorded at the request of presenters.

Submission & Evaluation Information

A limited number of project briefings will be accepted.* We encourage submissions that:

  • Address state-of-the-art developments and issues of interest to the membership (see CNI’s topics pages and recent member meetings for some themes that have been important to our work in recent years)
  • Focus on novel, timely, or creative approaches to community challenges related to digital information
  • Are geared to high-level administrators and policy makers
  • Feature topics that would particularly benefit from interactive discussion

Project briefings are not intended to serve as marketing sessions for products or services; presentations that are promotional in nature, including for non-profit services or initiatives, are not appropriate.

*CNI’s quarterly Pre-Recorded Project Briefing Series is designed to complement the project briefings at the biannual membership meetings, offering an opportunity to share updates and reports on new initiatives in a timelier manner and on a year-round basis. We encourage prospective speakers to explore this program as they consider submission options.
