Pre-conferences can either be a 1-day or a 1/2-day session and will occur on Tuesday, February 13, 2018.
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+.
If you're looking for inspiration, there are many great examples of pre-conferences from previous years.
We are taking proposals until September 30, 5pm PST/8pm EST. After a period of public voting on workshops, we hope to confirm sessions with facilitators shortly after.
