  • Data Management and Use
  • Digitization and Preservation
  • Diversity and Inclusion

(2)   Presentation title and description (approximately 500 words). 

  • The description should outline the main points of the session and its relevance to attendees at this time.  The proposal should describe one or more active learning exercise to be included in the session.  The proposal should indicate any pre-or post-MW work expected.  Workshop presenters are urged to encourage community building among participants.

(3)   Short presentation description (not more than 100 words), for use in promotional materials.

(4)   At least three (3) learning outcomes and how they will be achieved.
