Submit Your Proposals for the Library 2.012 Worldwide Virtual Conference!

Proposals for the free Library 2.012 Worldwide Virtual Conference are due at the end of next week (September 15th), and we really hope you will consider submitting to present if you live in the library world or your work is related! Last year's conference had just under 10,000 attendee log-ins from all over the world!

Because the conference dates are earlier this year, we know that the submission process for many of you is smack dab at the start of the school year, and you may be (are likely!) overwhelmed with all that you are doing. But we do want to hear from you, and hope you will find 15 minutes to submit a proposal online at http://www.library20.com/page/proposal-submission-2012.

If the deadline of September 15 is absolutely out of the question, don't panic. There is a post-deadline submission process, giving you an additional week to submit your presentation proposal. Post-deadline submissions must be received by September 22, 2012, and will be considered only after the full review of those submitted on time. Acceptances will be contingent on available conference time slots and given in order of submission date.

The Library 2.012 Worldwide Virtual Conference presentations will cover six amazing subject strands, which you can view HERE. Proposed presentations can be found HERE, and currently accepted presentations can be found HERE.
