Two Special Events for Students at the ASIS&T Annual Meeting in Montreal

1) The 4th Annual ASIS&T Student Design Competition

Join other students in a fun and challenging system design competition! 

The mission: To develop and present plans for a creative and innovative system in response to a design challenge.

The reward: Each member of the winning design team will receive complimentary registration to the 2014 ASIS&T Annual Meeting. In addition, you will meet other students, and present your ideas to a jury of industry and academic leaders in information science.

The kick-off meeting will be held on Sunday, November 3, from 8-9pm, in Salon 6 & 7 in the Sheraton. We will form design teams, review the procedures, and present the challenge.

You and your team will generate a system proposal, and present it to the jury and an audience of conference attendees on Tuesday November 5, from 10:30-11:30am. At the end of the presentation session, the jury will announce a winning team, who will win free registration for next year, and will also be written up in the Bulletin of ASIST. Everyone will be able to network with members of the jury and receive additional feedback. After that you can relax and go to SIG/CON on Tuesday night.

Spread the word!
Design Competetion Committee; Candy Schwartz (candy.schwartz at simmons.edu), Rong Tang, and Michelle Kazmer

2) The Annual Students-Only Party

A clandestine student party will be held on Sunday night, November 3, Suite 716, in the Sheraton. It is for students only (yes, you are special!). The party will start at 9pm, right after the student design competition meeting. Oh, and you'll need this password to enter: "cogito ergo sum"!

It will be a fun social gathering with your peers at ASIST. Some of our ASIST leaders will also be invited to join. Feel free to spread the word "secretly" to other student members of ASIST that you know! Shhhh...!!!
