Breakout sessions at Code4Lib 2011 are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.
Those interested in the same project/problem can hang out in a space together for 70 minute blocks. Generally the person who suggests the topic will take on the role as moderator to begin and moderate the discussion. Anyone can propose a breakout session - please think about whether you would want a session to be held on Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on the order of talks and who you hope will attend.
Lightning talks are scheduled on all three days Code4Lib 2011. A lightning talk is a fast-paced 5 minute talk on a topic of your choosing.
Needed: volunteer to ensure presentation files get added to this page.
Mark Jason Dominus has a nice page about lightning talks, which includes this summary of why you might want to do one:

Kuali OLE: Architecture for Diverse and Linked Data

Code4Lib 2011, Tuesday 8 February, 11:50 - 12:10
With programming scheduled to be begin in January 2011 on the Kuali Open Library Environment (OLE), the Kuali OLE Functional Council is developing the requirements for an architecture for diverse data sets and linked data. With no frontrunner for one bibliographic data standard, and local requirements on what data will be accompanying or linked to the main record store, Kuali OLE needs to build a flexible environment for records management and access.
We will present the concepts of our planned architecture, a multi-repository framework, using a document repository, a semantic repository, and a relational repository, brokered on top of the enterprise service bus of Kuali Rice. As a community source project, this is an opportunity for the Kuali OLE partners to present our plans for discussion with the community, and we look forward to feedback, questions, and comments.
Hey, Dilbert. Where's My Data?!

Libraries are notorious for maintaining data in massively disparate systems such as databases, flat files, xml and web services. The data is rich and valuable to assessment, but extracting value from multiple systems is complex and time consuming. Yes, there are open source and commercial solutions available, but libraries have unique requirements that can be difficult to integrate into these products. Commercial options also tend to be overly complex or the cool features require an expensive enterprise edition.
