and technology with a chance to share ideas, be inspired, and forge
collaborations. For more information about the Code4Lib community, please
The conference will be held at the Portland Hilton & Executive Tower in
from February 9-12, 2015.
Proposals for Prepared Talks:
We encourage everyone to propose a talk.
Prepared talks are 20 minutes (including setup and questions), and should
focus on one or more of the following areas:
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 should be
addressed or better understood
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.

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 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
be guaranteed an opportunity to register for the conference. The standard
conference registration fee will still apply.
Proposals can be submitted through Friday, November 7, 2014 at 5pm PST
(GMT−8). Voting will start on November 11, 2014 and continue through
November 25, 2014. The URL to submit votes will be announced on the
Code4Lib website and mailing list and will require an active code4lib.org
account to participate. The final list of presentations will be announced
in early- to mid-December.
