Background Guide Guidelines for Conference Staff
This guide has everything a staff member needs to know about how to write a Background Guide. It starts discussing the purpose and goal of the BG, and then describes each section of the BG in detail. Finally, it provides some tips and advice for how to approach the challenge of writing and researching a BG.
We are currently developing a tool that will help you see the BGs that have been written for past EIM conferences. We don't yet have a date for when that will be released, but if you would like to inquire about the topics for your individual BG, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
BG Formatting Template
Once the dais has written their BG, this template will help you turn their writing into a beautifully formatted BG. After updating the template with your conference's logo and information, you can simply copy and paste the dais's BG into the specified areas here (paste values), and most of the formatting work should be done for you already!
