Call for Expressions of Interest to Host 2017 ISSOTL Conference

The Convenings Committee welcomes expressions of interest in hosting the 2017 ISSOTL annual conference. The ISSOTL Board has stated a preference for a North American conference location in 2017, but the Convenings Committee will consider expressions of interest from any institution or group of institutions regardless of location.

Expressions of interest must include:

  • Name, title/position, and institutional affiliation of primary contact
  • Host institution(s)
  • City in which conference would be held
  • Intended site of the conference - a university campus, conference center, a hotel, or some other venue
  • Month in which conference would be held

Expressions of interest must be emailed to by September 4, 2015, and addressed to Peter Felten, chair of the Convenings Committee and president-elect of ISSOTL.

Questions about expressions of interest, hosting the conference, or the selection process should be directed to Peter Felten.
