When: May 29, 2024 to June 1, 2024 

Where: Reno, Nevada, University of Nevada, Reno Libraries in the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center.

We are bringing it back to the basics and looking to the future for 2024 with a program focused on discussing core archival principles as well as innovative projects with an eye on the future! Session topics may include but certainly are not limited to workflows, processes, archival description, mentoring, outreach, relationship building, digitization, and beyond! 

Proposals for the following are encouraged:  

Pre-conference Workshops (Wednesday): 

  • Workshops may be full-day (6 hours) or half-day (3 hours) 

Conference Sessions (Thursday/Friday): 

  • Presentations may be 15, 30, or 60 minutes 

  • Breakout rooms/roundtable discussions

  • Informal hour-long discussions related to a particular theme 

  • Submitting a proposal indicates your intention to lead the discussion 

  • Poster sessions:

  • Posters will be on display Thursday and Friday of the conference 

  • Presenters should be available to discuss their posters with conference attendees during specified breaks 

Please submit your proposals here. Presenters can attend in person or present virtually.  

There is also a Google document where CIMA members can informally propose ideas and connect with other members who might be interested in presenting on the same or similar topic. 

The Program Committee has completed a tentative schedule, which includes workshops, dine-arounds, presentation sessions, keynote, posters, reception, breakout sessions, business meeting/awards luncheon, and tours. Stay tuned for more!
