STELLA Moved Virtually to Oct. 9, 2020

Due to the ongoing impact of COVID19, the next STELLA Unconference will take place virtually, as a one-day event on Friday, October 9, 2020. Sessions are planned from 8am (PDT)/11am (EDT) until 3pm(PDT)/6pm(EDT), though timing may still change slightly.  Registered attendees will be able to suggest topics for discussion and submit lightning talks as we get closer to the date. 

This free event welcomes current or aspiring science, technology, engineering and medical/health librarians and those interested in STEM librarianship. In the unconference spirit, YOU will drive the agenda and determine what discussions and breakouts will take place. It’s a great chance to discuss and learn about current topics relevant to STEM librarianship.

Advanced registration is now open for those who have registered for the orginial May 2020 STELLA. Registration will be open to the general public on August 10th! Registration is capped at 200 participants. Thanks to our generous sponsors, there is no registration fee. As in the past, we will have a waitlist to attend once we have reached capacity.

So we continue to work out the details, we will certainly keep you informed and please check our website, https://stellaunconference.com/ for updates. If you have any questions or comments, please email stellaunconference@gmail.com.  

We hope you and your community are well during this unprecedented worldwide event.

Sincerely,

The STELLA 2020 Planning Committee

We regret to announce the cancellation of the May 29-30 date for 2020 STELLA unconference meeting at the University of Iowa.

This decision was made due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have set a tentative new date of October 9 & 10, 2020 (Save the Date!). 

At this time, we are closing and clearing the registration for the May date and will open registration later in the year for the October event. You will need to sign-up anew for the October date.

So much remains unknown at this time, but we will certainly keep you informed and please check our website, https://stellaunconference.com/ for updates. If you have any questions or comments, please email stellaunconference@gmail.com.
