Hello Evergreen Community!
On behalf of the 2016 Evergreen International Conference Planning
Committee, it gives us great pleasure to announce the official call for
proposals for the 2016 conference being held in Raleigh, NC from April
Like last year’s conference, there are three tracks under which you may
submit a proposal:
End user: best practices and techniques for using Evergreen in
day-to-day library operations.
General: programs on administration, training, making the decision to
move to Evergreen, participating in the Evergreen community, and other
topics related to using Evergreen and open source software in consortial
and standalone environments.
Technical: topics related to system administration, software
development, implementation, hardware, and integration with other software.
Instructions for Submitting Proposals:
All submissions must include a session title, short description
appropriate for the conference program (no more than 200 words), and the
names, institutions, job titles and email addresses of those who will be
presenting the material at the conference.
Indicate your intended program track (End User, General, Technical) and
presumed technical expertise of your audience (None, Low, Moderate, High).
List any technology requirements.
Email all proposal submissions to 2016EIC at gmail.com.
The deadline for submitting proposals is *Friday, January 15, 2016*.
After looking over last year’s evaluation surveys and responses to the
interest email that was sent out earlier this month, we have noticed that
there is a high demand for more End User track sessions. In light of this,
we strongly encourage any and all Evergreen front-line/end users who have
ideas for presentations to submit a proposal. For a more extensive list of
possible program ideas, please visit the conference website
<http://evergreen-ils.org/conference/2016-call-for-proposals/>. If you are
a hesitant first-time presenter, you are encouraged to contact the Program
Committee for guidance in planning and preparing a presentation.
If you have questions regarding the submission process or questions about
proposals in general, please feel free to contact Jennifer Dale (
Jennifer.Dale at davidsoncountync.gov) or Jonathan Furr (furrjt at forsyth.cc).
We look forward to hearing from you!
