Deadline: This Friday, February 20, 2009

Update: We're happy to announce that we have some very exciting 
keynoters lined up for this year's Forum:

David Weinberger, author of 'Everything is Miscellaneous'
Joan Lippincott, CNI's Associate Executive Director
and one more in negotiation that will be announced very soon

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.
