Call for Proposals - Concordia University Library’s 16th Annual Research Forum

Proposals are now being accepted for Concordia University Library’s 16th Annual Research Forum. This year's Research Forum will be held on Friday, April 27th, 2018, at the Loyola Jesuit Hall and Conference Centre in the beautiful city of Montreal.   

The Research Forum provides an opportunity for librarians, archivists, graduate students, teaching faculty, and information professionals to describe and promote their completed or in-progress research, practical case studies or projects. The Forum also provides a venue for researchers to seek suggestions for enhancing their research interests, to identify potential new partners for projects, to test the effectiveness of their undertakings, and to promote research in academic libraries. 

This year’s keynote speaker is Roberto Rocha.  Roberto is a data journalist at the CBC, part of a four-person national investigative team that specializes in data-driven stories. Before that, he worked 10 years at the Montreal Gazette, where he developed an interest in the craft and became one of the first in Canada to do it full time. He is a regular speaker at conferences and has lectured in journalism at the University of Ottawa.
