SOCIETY OF AMERICAN ARCHIVISTS “FOUNDATIONS AND INNOVATIONS” Tuesday, July 25, 9:00 am–5:00 pm • Oregon Convention Center CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS / CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS If you’re engaged in research, seeking to identify research-based solutions for your institution, willing to participate in the research cycle by serving as a beta site for research trials, or simply interested in what’s happening in research and innovation, then join us for the 11th annual SAA Research Forum: “Foundations and Innovations”! Researchers, practitioners, educators, students, and the curious across all sectors of archives and records management are invited to participate. Use the Forum to discuss, debate, plan, organize, evaluate, or motivate research projects and initiatives. The event seeks to facilitate collaboration and help inform researchers about what questions and problems need to be tackled. Archivists from around the country and the world will convene at ARCHIVES 2017, the Annual Meeting of SAA in Portland, July 23–29. The Research Forum will provide a Platform to acknowledge current—and encourage future—research and innovation from across the broad archives community and for the benefit of the archives profession. Research Forum Events at ARCHIVES 2017 The following events are planned for 2017: • Research Presentations and Posters (Tuesday, July 25, 9:00 am–5:00 pm): Here’s your chance to present, discuss, listen to, or view research reports and results on a variety of topics. The final thirty minutes of this session will seek input for SAA’s 2018 Research Forum. • Poster Sessions: Be sure to make time to visit the poster sessions, which will include practice innovation and research topics. CALL FOR PLATFORM AND POSTER PRESENTATIONS SAA invites submission of abstracts (of 250 words or fewer) for either 10-minute platform presentations or poster presentations. Topics may address research on, or innovations in, any aspect of archives practice or records management in government, corporate, academic, scientific, or other setting. Presentations on research results that may have emerged since the call for proposals deadline are welcome, as are reports on research completed within the past three years that you think is relevant and valuable for discussion. Abstracts will be evaluated by a review committee co-chaired by Nancy McGovern (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and Helen Tibbo (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill). Deadline for submission of abstracts: May 1, 2017. You will be notified of the review committee’s decision by July 1 (in advance of the Early-Bird registration deadline). Submit your 250-word abstract no later than May 1 via email to email@example.com. Please be sure to include: Presentation title, your name, affiliation, email address, and whether your proposal is for a platform or poster presentation.
