CFP: 3rd Annual Liberact Workshop (Raleigh, NC - September 17-18, 2015)

The North Carolina State University Libraries will be hosting the 3rd Annual Liberact Workshop on September 17-18, 2015 at the James B. Hunt Jr. Library in Raleigh, North Carolina [1]. We invite you to participate in this exciting workshop for practitioners and researchers involved in interactive technologies in Libraries.

Liberact strives to meet the need for libraries and museums to stay current with the rapidly changing landscape of interactive technologies through an intensive collaborative experience that provides a rich opportunity for cross-channel communication. Most workshop attendees are also presenters, as librarians, technologists, and faculty come together to present current projects, discuss next steps and brainstorm future projects. Previous workshops were hosted by Harvard University [2] and the University of Calgary [3]. This workshop will immediately precede the Designing Libraries IV conference to be held at the same location on Sept. 20-22.

Presentations are encouraged to explore the topics of immersive experiences, visualization spaces, and associated technologies such as virtual reality, augmented reality, and 3D environments. Proposals are being accepted for the following formats: presentation (15-45 min.), interactive poster/demonstration, and lightning talk. The deadline for proposals is August 24, 2015.

Event details, including registration link, proposal submission form, and accommodation information are available through the workshop website at The registration cost of $150 covers breakfasts, lunches, breaks, and the cost of bus travel from the downtown hotel to the Hunt Library. A block of hotel rooms will be available for $137/night + tax for reservations made until August 17. Attendance will be limited to a total of 50 people.

Thanks for your interest in Liberact 2015!
