--- Apologies for cross-posting ---

We are now accepting pre-conference proposals for the 2018 Code4Lib
conference in Washington, DC. These pre-conferences can either be a 1-day
or a 1/2-day session and will occur on Tuesday, February 13, 2018.

To propose a session, please go to https://goo.gl/forms/dK0JmxOLCc0WgNZF2

The pre-conference sessions give folks a space to share and build
knowledge, as well as to teach attendees new skills relevant to library
technology. Pre-conference sessions can range from workshops to working
sessions. We welcome a variety of ideas and encourage submissions from
first-time presenters and members of groups not well-represented within the
Code4Lib community, including but not limited to: women, people of color,
people with disabilities, LGBT+.

If you're looking for inspiration, there are many great examples of
pre-conferences from last year. To view these, visit

We are taking proposals until September 30, 2017, 5pm PST/8pm EST. After a
period of public voting on workshops, we hope to confirm sessions with the
facilitators shortly after.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us by contacting
Ben Florin at benjamin.florin at gmail.com.
