> Once Upon a Data Point: Sustaining our Data Storytellers
> In many ways, researchers are data storytellers: they create compelling data-supported narratives for examining both historical and current social phenomena and for facilitating social change and reconciliation. We professionals who support these data storytellers play vital roles in giving their data stories life. We assist our data storytellers in:
> · Discovering existing and collecting new data from which to craft the stories.
> · Analyzing and managing data to uncover the stories hiding within.
> · Visualizing data to offer vivid and meaningful illustrations to enhance the stories.
> · Teaching data literacy skills to their audiences so they can understand and critique the stories.
> · Curating, archiving, and sharing data so that the stories are not lost for future generations, and so new data storytellers may weave even more stories from the data.
> And we conduct our own research to tell our own stories and to also improve our support of other data storytellers.
> We welcome submissions that tell diverse stories about our IASSIST and ACMLA-ACACC communities’ experiences, that offer conference attendees suggestions of how they can implement or adapt lessons for their own work, and that have wide-reaching appeal to our international attendees. Although the positive outcomes are always something people want to hear, there’s also an appetite for learning about the things that didn’t go well, particularly any problems you faced and how others might avoid or handle them.
> So bring us your data comedies, tragedies, epics, horror stories, mysteries, histories, thrillers, adventures, fables, fantasies, science fiction, and even romances if you’ve got them! We look forward to sharing, learning from, and adapting each other's stories.
> Submitting Proposals
> We welcome submissions for papers, presentations, panels, posters, and Pecha Kuchas in English and French.
