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.

To Propose a Talk, please fill out the following form:

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 Monday, November 9, 2015 at midnight PST (GMT−8). Voting will start
on November 16, 2015 and continue through December 7, 2015. The URL to
submit votes will be announced on the Code4Lib website and mailing list and
will require an active<> account to
participate. The final list of presentations will be announced in

Thank you,

The Code4Lib 2016 Program Committee
