CUA CHIM Forum Update: Call-For-Posters Submission Deadline Extended

The Department of Library and Information Science at the Catholic University of America will be hosting the Cultural Heritage Information Management Forum on June 5, 2015.  This year’s Forum will include a poster session.  Call-For-Posters: Cultural Heritage Information Management Forum at the Catholic University of America, posted on January 31, 2015, outlined the specifications for submitting poster proposals to the Forum Planning Committee.

Since the original press release, the CHIM Forum Planning Committee has elected to officially extend the poster proposal submission deadline to March 15, 2015.  All subsequent call-for-posters announcements and related information releases will reflect this change.  All other “important dates” related to the Forum and call-for-posters remain the same, including the March 23, 2015 notification of proposal acceptance.


For more detailed information on submitting a proposal, please refer to the original blog post.  Those seeking further details about the CHIM Forum itself may refer to the event website.

As always, questions and concerns can be answered by contacting the CHIM Forum Planning Committee.


Important Changes:  Deadline for poster proposal submissions has been changed from March 2, 2015 to March 15, 2015.
