Computing Strategies Across the Curriculum
University of Vermont
April 3 and 4, 1992


Call for Proposals

Last April, The University of Vermont hosted its second annual
Computing Strategies Across the Curriculum conference exploring
strategies to enhance the collegiate curriculum through the
use of computers, networks, and media. This conference drew
over 350 participants from the Eastern United States and

This year's conference will coincide with the Calculated
Image, an art exhibit at the University of Vermont's Fleming
Museum featuring computer generated images produced by artists
as well as engineers. Therefore topics on art, imaging, and
design are welcome, as well as topics including networking,
hypermedia and courseware authoring, libraries and media
services, user support and training, integration of academic
and administrative systems, and research and teaching in all
academic areas.

The program committee is soliciting proposals for
presentations and workshops that fit into a lecture /
demonstration format. Introductory, advanced, and innovative
applications are encouraged. Presentations should be about 40
minutes in length, with longer blocks possible for workshops.
The presentations will be held in small lecture halls that
seat 50 to 60 attendees. Both Macintosh and MS-DOS systems
with projection devices will be available to lecturers. Smaller
computing labs seating 10 to 20 people are available for
workshops using MS-DOS, Macintosh, or Silicon Graphics
equipment. Proposals requiring other systems (Apple II, Amiga,
etc.) are not discouraged, but in these cases on site
equipment cannot be guaranteed.

Rules for proposals

Presenters should submit proposals to the program committee
listed below by December 10th, 1991 for consideration.
Proposals should include a title, short abstract (50-75
words), and equipment needs. Notifications of acceptance and
instructions to authors will be provided by January 10, 1992.

Presenters with successful proposals will be expected to
provide a 4-5 page paper summarizing their session no later
than February 10, 1992 for inclusion in the conference
proceedings. Papers must be submitted in electronic form.
Presenters are also invited to include any relevant software
on floppy disks for distribution with the proceedings. All
presenters will be provided full conference registration;
travel and lodging are the responsibility of the presenter.
