The Code4Lib 2020 call for presentation proposals ends in just over a week,
on Wednesday, October 16th!

Code4Lib 2020 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 <>.

The conference will be held at the Westin Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, PA,
from Sunday, March 8, 2020 to Wednesday, March 11, 2020.  More information
about Code4lib 2020 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 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 2020

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 (up to 2 speakers per
talk). The standard conference registration fee will apply.

Proposals can be submitted through Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at 11:59pm
Pacific time. Voting will start on Monday, October 21, 2019 and continue
through Friday, November 1, 2019 at 11:59pm Pacific time. The committee
plans to announce selected proposals on Wednesday, November 20, 2019.

Thank you,

The Code4Lib 2020 Program Committee
