Breakout session ideas

People interested in the same project/problem can hang out in a space together for 60-90 minute blocks. Somebody near to the project/problem can coordinate discussion, set up hackers, tackle a challenge session topic, etc. Larger groups will get separate space, smaller groups can just spread out in the larger conference room space.

If you have an idea for a breakout topic, you can add it here. (See below the fold for the current list of suggestions.)

SUGGESTIONS:

one more week for proposals

The deadline for proposing a talk has been extended one week to Jan. 9. We've already got several very cool proposals but more is better, and there's plenty of room for spillover in the lightning sessions and breakouts.

To submit, read this first and then follow these instructions. Especially the 75-words-max part.

code4lib card

If you have a blog please consider adding a playing card to your site:

  • http://www.code4lib.org/cards/code4lib1.png
  • http://www.code4lib.org/cards/code4lib2.png

You can use the following HTML:

<a href="http://code4lib.org/">
<img src="http://code4lib.org/cards/code4lib1.png" 
  border="0" 
  alt="code4lib" 
  title="code4lib"/>
</a>

Feel free to use the images directly from code4lib.org if you don't want to go through the effort of grabbing them. This will allow us to secretly discover your site by trawling our logs.

Having the playing card can let people know about code4lib.org who don't know about it already. For examples of how to use them check out roy or dchud.

Code4lib 2006 Call For Proposals

Call for proposals - Code4lib 2006

We are now accepting proposals for prepared talks for Code4lib 2006. Code4lib 2006 is a loosely structured conference for library technologists to commune, gather/create/share ideas and software, be inspired, and forge collaborations. It is also an outgrowth of the Access HackFest, wrapped into a conference-ish format. It is *the* event for technologists building digital libraries and digital information systems, tools, and software.

At least six time slots will be available for prepared talks. We will choose from among the proposals based on diversity of topics, usefulness, wow factor, and potential impact.

Proposals of 75 words or less are being accepted for review now. Please send your name, email address, and proposal to code4libcon at lists.gatech.edu.

We cannot accept every prepared talk proposal, but multiple lightning talk sessions will provide everyone who wishes to present with ample opportunity to show off. The proposal deadline is 5pm EST January 9, 2006, and proposers will be notified by Midnight January 9, 2006.

Prepared Talk Information

Prepared talks are 20 minutes, and must center on "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), or "challenges" (One or more big problems we should collectively address). We will evaluate proposals on criteria of usefulness, newness, geekiness, and diversity of topics.

Again, proposals should be sent to code4libcon at lists.gatech.edu
