Code4lib 2008 Keynote Survey

Though we ran into some problems getting the code4lib.org Advanced Poll module working in time, the code4lib 2008 keynote survey has been posted.

Voting is open until midnight 11/22 EST. Shortly thereafter Mike Giarlo will post response data to this list. Let your voices be heard!

Code4lib 2008 Call for Proposals

We are now accepting proposals for prepared talks for Code4lib 2008. Code4lib 2008 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-like format. It is *the* event for technologists building digital libraries and digital information systems, tools, and software.

Code4Lib 2008 will be in Portland, OR

Voting on the location of Code4Lib 2008 is now closed and the offer from Oregon State University to host in Portland, OR is the winner. We received three wonderful applications to host the conference, and we hope that everyone who applied will consider applying again.

Polling for interest in a European code4lib

Following up on discussion over on #code4lib and the code4libcon Google group, I've set up a short survey. The survey polls respondents to see what interest there is in a European event, and to assess whether such an event should be as well as or instead of a North American code4libcon.

Please register your views, and raise awareness of this survey ahead of the closing date, 15 February.

As noted in the survey itself, neither the code4lib community nor Talis are bound to hold an event at a time or in a place solely on the basis of this survey. The results are freely available, during and after the survey.

Call for Proposals to Host Code4Lib 2008

Proposals to host the 2008 Code4Lib Conference will be accepted through Friday, February 16, 2007. A decision will be made the following week by popular vote. See the hosting information page for more information.
