Conferences and Events

The Knowledge Box offers conference and event hosting for the Georgia College community. We are excited to provide open-access archiving and sharing of conference materials, and collaborating with conference organizers. 

Hosting Policies 

  • Hosted events may be one-time or recurring. 
  • Hosted events and events must be sponsored, hosted, or organized with the substantial involvement of the Georgia College & State University community and open to attendance and/or participation by Georgia College & State University students, faculty, staff, alumni, or community partners. 
  • As a condition of using the platform for collection, review, and selection of event and event-related proposals, organizers must agree to the collection, archiving, and open access to event or event-related materials (such as abstracts, posters, and papers) in the Knowledge Box. 

Memorandum of Understanding

Most conference-related services are provided free of charge*; however, we do ask that conference organizers agree to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) as a condition of hosting their event in the Knowledge Box. During conference setup, the Knowledge Box admins will review the terms of the MOU and make any needed revisions.

Event Setup Form

During conference setup, the Knowledge Box admins will guide you through completion of the Event Setup Form. Once this form is complete, we will create and begin to configure your conference site. Conference sites can be ready to start collecting proposals in as little as two weeks.

Copyright and Reuse Licensing Considerations for New Conferences

The Knowledge Box admins strongly recommend use of Creative Commons licenses with hosted conference materials. During conference setup, the admins will help you develop copyright and reuse policies that fit the needs of your event and participants. For existing conferences, we are happy to help review your policies at any time.

Service Agreement

It is possible that costs may be incurred for the setup of conferences and events. These costs will be identified up-front via the Event Setup Form and the MOU. In this case, a Service Agreement will be enacted.

Possible costs to be borne by the organization include:

  • Custom design, including header banner
  • Changes to event design after finalization
