Update: We're happy to announce that we have some very exciting

The 2009 National Forum Committee seeks proposals for high quality
concurrent sessions for the 12th annual LITA National Forum to be held
at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah from
October 1-4, 2009.
This year we have switched over to online submissions so it's quick and
easy (see the URL below). Also, we've extended the deadline for
submitting proposals to February 20, 2009!
Theme: Open and Mobile
The Forum Committee is interested in presentations that highlight
specific technology implementations; just over-the-horizon technologies
that are almost ready for implementation; or information technology
research. We are interested in all types of libraries: public,
government, school, academic, special, and corporate. Proposals on any
aspect of library and information technology are welcome.
For more information on possible ideas for proposals, formats for
presentations, and required proposal information, please see the full
Call for Proposals at:
For projects that will still be in preliminary development in October
2009, we recommend presentation at a lightning talk or other
un-conference-like activity for which time will be reserved at Forum. A
call for these types of presentations and discussions will be issued
after February 2009.
Submit proposals by February 20, 2009 online at:
The 2009 Forum Planning Committee will review proposals starting in
February 2009. You will be contacted about the
status of your proposal by the end of March.
