What's New in 2017?

Revised Conference Schedule
We’re pleased to introduce a revised conference schedule, featuring dedicated no-conflict time for education sessions.  Educational sessions are offered in 60-, 75- and 90-minute formats—time lengths chosen based on the latest adult learning models to ensure an optimal balance of attention and knowledge retention.

Three General Sessions
In addition to the customary opening general session on Sunday and Tuesday’s closing general session, Monday will also feature its own general session open to all conference attendees.

Streams

The majority of educational workshops and continuing education sessions in SLA 2017 are classified as relating to one of four thematic Streams: Leadership; Data Management; Intellectual Property; or Metrics, Analytics, and Assessment.

Main Street SLA

Main Street SLA is new for the SLA 2017 Annual Conference and serves as the conference hub for attendees—a place for building connections, idea exchange and to learn more about SLA and its community. Kiosks in Main Street SLA enable individual SLA units (chapters, divisions, and caucuses) to showcase and promote their work and share newsletters, calendar of events, etc.

Health and Wellness Activities
You asked for it, so we’re making it happen!  This year’s conference will offer wellness activities to keep your mind and body active and energized during the conference!
