The Code4Lib community is calling for proposals to host the thirteenth
annual Code4Lib Conference in 2018.
Prior to submitting a proposal we recommend reviewing the conference
hosting web page  and How To Plan a Code4LibCon on the wiki  to
learn more about the kind of venue the community seeks and the
responsibilities involved with hosting the conference. In particular,
I would like to point out that in recent years, the total cost of
hosting the conference has been in the low to middle-low six figures.
The deadline for proposals is midnight EST on Friday, February 17th,
2017. The decision will be made via online popular vote. Voting will
begin on or around Monday February 20th, 2017 and will continue until
midnight PST on Friday, March 3rd, 2017. The results of the vote will
be announced on or before Thursday morning on March 9th and emailed
out to the listserv.
You can apply by making your pitch to the Code4Lib Conference Planning
list  and linking to your proposal on the 2017 Hosting Proposals
wiki page ; attention to the criteria listed on the conference
hosting page is appreciated. Good luck!
A number of people who have helped organize past conferences are on
the main mailing list, code4libcon, Slack, and IRC. In addition,
members of the Local Planning Committee for the 2017 Conference will
also be available to potential bidders to answer questions; if you
wish to get in touch or set up a call, please contact Galen Charlton
at gmcharlt at gmail dot com.
