Call for Proposals: Canadian Library Association 2011 Conference

The 66th Canadian Library Association (CLA) National Conference and Trade Show will be held in Halifax from Wednesday, May 25 to Saturday, May 28, 2011.

CLA is pleased to invite librarians and other interested parties to propose program submissions for this national event.

Proposals are being solicited on any topic relevant to the Canadian library and information professional community. The conference has no set theme, and there are no defined subject streams – proposals on all topics of professional interest will be considered. The Program Committee would like to encourage proposals which express innovative and creative ways for presenting information to delegates.

Sessions may be presented in any format: panels of speakers, single speakers, round-table discussions, debates, “un-conference” session, interviews – let your imagination guide you! The only restriction is time: you may request either a 60 minute or 90 minute slot in the schedule.

Poster presentations are also being solicited. These presentations take the form of display boards, with presenters available for one-to-one discussion with delegates at a specified time. Again, any topic of broad interest to the library and information profession will be considered.

All proposals will be reviewed by the CLA Conference Program Committee. The submission deadline is October 1, 2010.

Please visit the conference website for more information.
