Conferences and events currently hosted by the Knowledge Box:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
