Code4Lib community which are not strictly technical in nature, e.g.

In order to provide increased opportunities for a diversity of
speakers and topics, all presentations will be listed by title and

included until the program is posted. We will also be soliciting 10,

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.
