2017 LITA Forum – Call for Proposals, Deadline Extended

The LITA Forum is a highly regarded annual event for those involved in new and leading edge technologies in the library and information technology field. Please send your proposal submissions here by June 2, 2017, and join your colleagues in Denver Colorado.

The 2017 LITA Forum Committee seeks proposals for the 20th Annual Forum of the Library and Information Technology Association in Denver, Colorado, November 9-12, 2017 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Downtown Convention Center.

Submit your proposal at this site

The Forum Committee welcomes proposals for concurrent sessions, workshops, poster sessions, or full-day preconferences related to all types of libraries: public, school, academic, government, special, and corporate. Collaborative, hands-on, and interactive concurrent sessions, such as panel discussions, hands-on practical workshops, or short talks followed by open moderated discussions, are especially welcomed. Proposals may cover projects, plans, ideas, or recent discoveries. We accept proposals on any aspect of library and information technology. The committee particularly invites submissions from first time presenters, and library school students. We deliberately seek and strongly encourage submissions from underrepresented groups, such as women, people of color, the LGBTQA+ community and people with disabilities.

The New Submission deadline is Friday June 2, 2017. 

Presenters will submit final presentation slides and/or electronic content (video, audio, etc.) to be made available online following the event. Presenters are expected to register and participate in the Forum as attendees; a discounted registration rate will be offered.

If you have any questions, contact Vincci Kwong, Forum Planning Committee Chair, at vkwong@iusb.edu.
