CFP: Code4lib 2009 (Providence, Rhode Island)

CFP: Code4lib 2009 (Providence, Rhode Island)

We are now accepting proposals for prepared talks for Code4lib 2009. Code4lib 2009 is a loosely structured conference for library technologists to commune, gather/create/share ideas and software, be inspired, and forge collaborations.

The conference will be held Monday, February 23 (pre-conference day) through Thursday, February 26, 2009 in Providence, Rhode Island. More information can be found at

Prepared talks are 20 minutes, and must focus on one or more of the following areas:
- "tools" (some cool new software, software library or integration platform)
- "specs" (how to get the most out of some protocols, or proposals for new ones)
- "challenges" (one or more big problems we should collectively address)

The community will vote on proposals using the criteria of:
- usefulness
- newness
- geekiness
- diversity of topics

We cannot accept every prepared talk proposal, but multiple lightning talk sessions will provide everyone who wishes to present with an opportunity to do so.

Submit your proposal (in 75 words or less) at:

Proposals for prepared talks will be accepted through Sunday, November 23, 2008. Voting on proposals will occur the week of Monday, November 24, 2008, and presenters will be notified the week of Monday, December 1, 2008.
