The Southeast Chapter of ARLIS/NA is accepting proposals for presentations and lightning rounds for the 2017 Annual Conference, which will be held in Savannah Georgia from November 15-17. The lightning rounds are particularly great opportunities for students and young professionals to present their work and gain valuable conference experience.

Lightning rounds are meant as a way to share a topic or innovative idea in a fast and concise yet comprehensive visual presentation. Each round will follow the PechaKucha Lightning Talk format of no more than 20 slides, timed at 20 seconds apiece.
