Call for Pre-Conference Proposals - 2018 Code4Lib (Washington DC February 2018)

We are now accepting pre-conference proposals for the 2018 Code4Lib conference in Washington, DC. These pre-conferences can either be a 1-day or a 1/2-day session and will occur on Tuesday, February 13, 2018.

To propose a session, please go to

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. Preconference 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+.

If you're looking for inspiration, there are many great examples of pre-conferences from last year. To view these, visit

We are taking proposals until September 30, 2017, 5pm PST/8pm EST. After a period of public voting on workshops, we hope to confirm sessions with the facilitators shortly after. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us by contacting Ben Florin at
