There's still time to submit a pre-conference proposal for Code4Lib 2019! We are accepting proposals until Thursday, October 11, 2018, 5 PM PST / 8 PM EST. The 2019 conference will be held in sunny San José, California. Pre-conference workshops will occur on Tuesday, February 19, 2019. Pre-conference workshops can either be a full-day (six hour) or half-day (three hour) sessions.

Code4Lib 2019 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

The pre-conference sessions give folks a space to share and build knowledge, as well as to teach attendees new skills relevant to library technology. Pre-conference sessions can range from workshops to working sessions. We welcome a variety of ideas and encourage submissions from first-time presenters and members of groups not well-represented within the Code4Lib community, including but not limited to: women, people of color, people with disabilities, LGBT+.
