ALCTS Call for 2014 Proposals
The ALCTS Program Committee invites program and pre-conference proposals for the ALA Annual Conference 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 26 – July, 1. The committee will also accept proposals from those interested in planning virtual symposiums to be held before Midwinter 2014 and virtual pre-conferences prior to Annual 2014.
If you are interested in planning a pre-conference or program, please submit the appropriate web form (see below), and plan to meet with the Program Committee during ALA Annual 2013 in Chicago. You will be contacted to make an appointment for a 15 minute session during one of the committee’s meetings on Saturday, June 29th, 8:30-11:30 or Monday July 1, 1:00-5:30.
The committee and ALCTS staff will help you develop your ideas and plan logistics. It isn’t necessary to have all the details when you initially fill out the proposal form or visit the committee.
The Program Committee welcomes topics that will remain current and of interest in 2014, and encourages you to employ different program formats: lightning rounds, learning lounge style, debates, an “unconference” model, etc. Programs and pre-conferences often originate with ALCTS sections or interest groups, but they can also come from individuals or other groups.
