Proposals for CLA/CASL Conference

The 65th Canadian Library Association and Canadian Association for School Libraries National Conference and Trade Show will be held in Edmonton from Wednesday, June 2 to Saturday, June 5, 2010. CLA and CASL are currently inviting program submissions proposals for the conference. Note: the submission deadline is September 30, 2009.

From CLA: "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 Conference 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 ... 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".

All proposals will be reviewed by the CLA Conference Program Committee. Proposals must be submitted using CLA’s online submission form. For further information or to submit a proposal, please visit: http://www.cla.ca/conference/2010/".
