This is a reminder for those considering attending the 2009 IA Summit in Memphis next spring: This Sunday, November 30, is the deadline for submitting poster proposals!
Submitting a poster proposal is a light-weight way to have a more active role during the conference. I can imagine that having an accepted proposal makes it easier to get funding for the trip.
Last year, I deeply enjoyed preparing my By The Book poster and sharing the story of Info.nl's SNS Bank project (Dutch only) by showing all of the deliverables that are featured in Dan Brown's Communicating Design. Dan even dropped by for the photo opportunity.
Traditionally, the poster program is the most inclusive part of the program, which means many proposals get accepted. This is your chance to tell the global IA community about your ideas, your project, your models, your work environment.
Interested? Read all about submitting a poster proposal. I hope to see you in Memphis!
