Lightning Talks, Show & Tell, and Workshops
If you would like to give a lightning talk, do a show & tell, or even give a more formal workshop, then please add your topic and name below. This will help others learn more about what the Meeting will have to offer.
- tei2epub - a lightning talk about converting TEI/XML into "ebook" files (Eric Morgan)
- XC - a description of what is happening with the XC (eXtensible Catalog) and maybe a demonstration of a local XC implementation (Eric Morgan)
There are quite a number of hotels in the immediate area, but the following two are recommended in priority order:
- Inn at St. Mary's - Close. Inexpensive. Gets very good recommendations. Probably serves a breakfast. Within walking distance, but also hosts a shuttle service
- Morris Inn - On campus and therefore very close. A bit pricey. A nice hotel.
While pre-registration is not required, registration will make it easier for us to plan as well as get you wireless access while you are here. To register, simply send Eric Morgan an email message, and he will keep track of things.
There are no fees with the exception of your hotel and travel costs. At least one lunch and one dinner will be provided.
For better or for worse, Code4Lib "Midwest" has low-traffic mailing list/Google group. Consider subscribing.
We hope you will consider visit us here in northern Indiana. We will do our very best to make it worth your while.
