Call for Proposals

The Code4Lib 2011 conference

Code4Lib 2011 is a conference for library technologists to commune, gather/create/share ideas and software, be inspired, and forge collaborations. It is also an outgrowth of the Access HackFest, wrapped into a conference-like format. It is *the* event for technologists building digital libraries and digital information systems, tools, and software.

The conference will be held Monday February 7th - Thursday February 10th, 2011 in Bloomington, IN. More information can be found at http://code4lib.org/conference/2011/.

Prepared talks

Prepared talks are 20 minutes, and must focus on one or more of the following areas:

   * "tools" (some cool new software, software library or integration platform)
   * "specs" (how to get the most out of some protocols, or proposals for new ones)
   * "challenges" (one or more big problems we should collectively address)

The community will vote on proposals using the criteria of:

   * usefulness
   * newness
   * geekiness
   * diversity of topics

We cannot accept every prepared talk proposal, but multiple lightning talk sessions should provide everyone who wishes to present with an opportunity to do so.


Proposals can be submitted through November 13. Voting will commence soon thereafter and be open through December 1st. Successful candidates will be notified by December 3rd. The submitter (and if necessary a second presenter) will be guaranteed an opportunity to register for the conference through December 21st.

Guidelines for Proposals and Submissions

Proposal abstracts must be no longer than 500 words. Include your name and email address. All proposals should be submitted on the wiki page.
