Code4Lib 2009 Schedule

All conference events listed below will take place at the Renaissance Providence Hotel. Some pre-conferences may take place on the Brown University campus.

2009 Pre-Conferences

We have 8 pre-conferences for code4lib2009 -- 2 full day and 6 half day. The plan is to charge a flat $25 pre-conference fee to cover room and break costs. Plan to arrive at morning sessions beginning at 8:30 am, and afternoon sessions beginning at 1.

Two 12-passenger shuttles circling between the Renaissance and Brown will run 7:45-9:45, 11:45-1:45, 4:15-6:15. Some may prefer to walk; allow at least 20 minutes for the 1 mile walk to the John Hay Library, or 30 minutes for the 1.5 miles to the Inn at Brown. Maps will be available.

By now pretty much everyone knows (since it was announced at Code4Lib 2008), but in the interest of the historical record, let it show that Brown University will be hosting Code4Lib 2009. They submitted the winning proposal that will bring all library coders who can make it to Providence, Rhode Island in February 2009. We hope to see you there!
