The Program Committee for the 2017 Code4Lib Conference in Southern California is now forming. This committee plans the structure of the program, solicits prepared talks from the community, arranges the voting on presentations, and shapes the final program to ensure balance and diversity of topics and presenters. These folks will also manage the flow of the program at the conference -- introducing speakers or soliciting other volunteers to MC as well as telling bad jokes while presenters fiddle with laptops.
Code4Lib 2017 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 http://code4lib.org/about/.
No prior experience or attendance at a Code4Lib conference is required. This is an excellent opportunity to get involved and introduce yourself to the community.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Whitni Watkins ( [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> ) or Aaron Collier ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>). This committee will be limited to 10 members, and is likely to fill up fast. Contact us by Friday, September 9th so we can add your name under the Program Committee section of the 2017 Conference Committees Page<http://wiki.code4lib.org/2017_Conference_Committees> and follow up with you soon.
