[IUG] IUG 2006 Program Interest Survey (Last Reminder)
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
Hi -- This is the last reminder about taking the first IUG 2006 Program Interest Survey, I would like to encourage everyone who is planning or thinking about attending the meeting in Denver this year to fill it out.
Cheryl Gowing and I have a bet about how many people with participate. I cannot go into the details, but it involves penguins, a box of See's chocolate, and a Barbie doll. I would love to tell you more, but I have already said too much.
Anyway, the deadline is Monday January 16th and we will have a report of the preliminary program after ALA Midwinter.
Thanks -- Corey
Here is the original message:
I am very pleased to announce the opening of the initial IUG 2006 Program Interest Survey. The survey will be closed on Monday January 16th (in the evening) so we can review the data at ALA Midwinter. You will find the survey here:
About the Survey:
The IUG Program Committee is conducting the initial IUG 2006 Program Interest Survey. We need you to fill out the survey to let us know which programs you are most likely to attend. We will use this information to put together a preliminary schedule and see which programs to offer as repeats. Filling out the survey is *not* a commitment to attend any given session, or even attend IUG. There is no limit as to how many folks from an institution may vote - anyone who thinks they may attend the conference is eligible to vote. We will conduct a second survey in mid-February once we have developed the preliminary schedule.
We are following the trend from recent years of having fewer repeated sessions, so it is very important for you to participate, even if you are not sure that you are attending (although why on earth would you not be heading to Denver next May!)
IUG and Innovative sessions are combined on this form. Innovative sessions are indicated with an * and the (III Session) notation after the title. Sessions proposed by IUG members have two additional pieces of information after the title. First, it shows the audience level (beginner, intermediate, advanced, or all users) and then the format (forum or presentation).
Again, you can find the survey form at:
