It’s hard to believe, but CFP season is here once again!

Have a great idea for a session to share at one of our events in Baltimore? You’re in luck! We have just issued Calls for Proposals for our conferences happening this November: the DLF Forum (#DLFforum, November 9-11), our Learn@DLF pre-conference (#LearnAtDLF, November 8), NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2020: Get Active with Digital Preservation (#digipres20, November 11-12), and CLIR’s Digitizing Hidden Collections Symposium (#digHC, November 11-12).

For all events, we welcome submissions from members and nonmembers alike. Students, practitioners, and others from any related field are invited to submit for one conference or multiple (though, different proposals for each, please). Please keep in mind that submissions for the Digitizing Hidden Collections Symposium should come from current or former participants in CLIR Digitizing Hidden Collections grant projects.

The DLF Forum and Learn@DLF CFP is here:

CLIR’s Digitizing Hidden Collections Symposium CFP is here : 

Session options range from 2-minute lighting talk sessions at DigiPres to half-day workshops at Learn@DLF, with many options in between.

The deadline for all opportunities is Monday, May 11, at 11:59pm Eastern Time.

This is an extension from the original deadline of April 27.
