We encourage all members of the library, archives, museums, cultural heritage organizations, and technology community to submit a proposal for a prepared talk. Prepared talks should focus on one or more of the following areas:
Proposals can be submitted through Wednesday, October 16, 2019.
In order to provide increased opportunities for a diversity of speakers and topics, all presentations will be listed by title and description only during the voting period. Speaker names will not be included until the program is posted. We will also be soliciting 10, 15, and 20 minute talks. You'll be asked to indicate which talk lengths you would be willing to accommodate for your proposal.
As in past years, the Code4Lib community will vote on proposals that they would like to see included in the program. The top 10 proposals are guaranteed a slot of their preferred length at the conference. The Program Committee will curate the remainder of the program in an effort to ensure diversity in program content and presenters. Community votes will, of course, still weigh heavily in these decisions.
Presenters whose proposals are selected for inclusion in the program will have conference registration slots held for them (up to 2 speakers per talk). In addition, panel participants will have registration slots held. The standard conference registration fee will apply.
A separate call for poster proposals will be offered at a later date. There will also be sign-up opportunities to present 5-minute lightning talks at the event.
