Code4Lib 2021 is soliciting proposals for prepared talks!

Code4Lib 2021 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 the Code4Lib website <https://code4lib.org/about/>.

The conference will be held virtually, from Monday, March 22, 2021 to
Friday, March 26, 2021.  More information about Code4lib 2021 is available
on this year’s conference website <https://2021.code4lib.org/>.

We encourage all members of the library, archives, museums, cultural
heritage organizations, and technology community to submit proposals for
prepared talks. 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.

We will 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 for Code4Lib 2021

As in past years, the Code4Lib community will vote on proposals that they
would like to see included in the program. 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.

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 weigh heavily in these decisions.

Presenters whose proposals are selected for inclusion in the program will
have conference registration slots held for them. The standard conference
registration fee will apply.

Proposals can be submitted through Monday, December 21, 2020 at 11:59pm
Pacific time. Voting will start Monday, January 4, 2021 and continue
through Friday, January 22, 2021 at 11:59pm Pacific time. The committee
plans to announce selected proposals by Monday, February 8, 2021.

Thank you,

The Code4Lib 2021 Program Committee
