The University Library Center for Digital Scholarship is excited to announce the 2024 Digital Scholarship Symposium. The event will take place on Thursday, May 23rd from 12–4pm in the David Kirk Digital Scholarship Commons (DSC) on the Ground Floor of McHenry Library. The Symposium showcases innovative undergraduate and graduate student digital research and creative activity, and will include a keynote talk (presenter TBD), a digital project showcase, and VizWall presentations. We will be posting an application link soon!

Digital Project Showcase

The Digital Project Showcase is an opportunity for students to display their work and invite conversation. This portion of the day is similar to a poster session, with multiple projects setup around the DSC space and the ability for attendees to walk around and view each one; however, instead of printed posters, we work with presenters to provide the technology necessary to have their live digital project on display, including with relevant interactivity. Types of projects that we have showcased previously include: websites, podcasts, YouTube channels, VR experiences, video games, short films, and 3D reconstructions.

VizWall Presentations

The VizWall portion of the symposium provides an opportunity for students to engage in a formal presentation of their projects. Students will have 10 minutes present in front of the VizWall, a 14'x4' screen. This type of presentation is similar to a conference presentation.
