What is Day of FITS?

Day of Filling in the Spaces (FITS) is an informal conference put on by LISSA every spring. We welcome guests and participants from all disciplines, and encourage current students, alumni, local information professionals, and faculty to attend.

This conference is a great opportunity to prepare for a more formal presentation or to share something you’re passionate about. You could present a poster, lightning round talk, or a longer presentation. Topics can be about your current research, talk about a hobby, or test drive a future conference presentation It is a great opportunity to practice public speaking in a low-pressure environment and support your peers!

If you have any questions, feel free to email us at lissasyracuse@gmail.com.

When is it?

Day of FITS will be Saturday, April 4th from 10 AM to 2 PM in Hinds Hall. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
