NOTE: Proposals can be submitted through Thursday, October 4, 2018 at
midnight Pacific time.

Code4Lib 2019 is a loosely-structured conference that provides people
working at the intersection of libraries/archives/museums/cultural heritage
and technology with a chance to share ideas, be inspired, and forge
collaborations. For more information about the Code4Lib community, please
visit https://code4lib.org/about/.

The conference will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton in San Jose, CA,
from February 19, 2019 to February 22, 2019.  More information about
Code4lib 2019 is available on this year’s conference website

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

   - Projects you've worked on which incorporate innovative implementation
of existing technologies and/or development of new software
   - Tools and technologies – How to get the most out of existing tools,
standards, and protocols (and ideas on how to make them better)
   - Technical issues – Big issues in library technology that are worthy of
community attention or development
   - Relevant non-technical issues – Concerns of interest to the Code4Lib
community which are not strictly technical in nature, e.g. collaboration,
diversity, organizational challenges, etc.

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. 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.

Submit a presentation 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). The standard conference registration fee will apply.

Proposals can be submitted through Thursday, October 4, 2018 at midnight
Pacific time. Voting will start on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 and continue
through Thursday, October 25, 2018 at midnight Pacific time. The committee
plans to announce selected proposals on Monday, October 29, 2018.

Thank you,

The Code4Lib 2019 Program Committee
