Dear friends,


DLF has several announcements to make!


Calls for Proposals

Have you been thinking carefully over your proposals for this year’s DLF Forum and affiliated events since we announced our Call for Proposals in March, but not yet had a chance to submit a proposal? This is the week - time is nearly out! All CFPs close on May 7 at 11:59pm Pacific Time.


Submit today for your chance to participate in our events this fall in Las Vegas:



Submit for one conference or all three (though, different proposals for each, please)! Session options range from 60-second Minute Madness sessions at DigiPres to daylong workshops at Learn@DLF, with many options in between.


DLF Community/Capacity Award Nominations

DLF Community/Capacity Award nominations are being accepted until tomorrow, May 1! Please take a moment to recognize anyone whose work is in keeping with the community spirit, generosity, openness, and care that are honored by the award. The community-chosen winner of the 2018 award will receive support to attend the Forum and accept the honor in person. Nominate here.

Anasuya Sengupata, co-director and co-founder of Whose Knowledge?, will open the 2018 DLF Forum with a talk titled, “Decolonizing Knowledge, Decolonizing the Internet: An Agenda for Collective Action.”
