Submit a Proposal

We welcome all Ex Libris product users to submit a proposal about how they’re utilizing Ex Libris products at their institution as well as topics addressing this year’s conference theme: “Current digital transformations of libraries unites colleagues—librarians, developers, researchers, staff, patrons, publishers, software vendors, data scientists, universities—to collaborate on becoming open global platforms. Libraries continue to introduce virtual reality in their services offered to enhance teaching and learning. Machine learning and artificial intelligence are being incorporated into library software by institutional developers and vendors alike. These technological advances create new user needs for libraries to meet in addition to transforming traditional library services and workflows at a rapid pace. The future of libraries is clear: the continuing and swift digital transformations within our institutional communities affect the services provided by libraries.”

The deadline for proposal submission has been extended to January 17, 2020. Speakers will receive notifications regarding proposal acceptance by early February. If you need additional incentive to submit a proposal, can we entice you with a speaker discount? All speakers receive $100 off their registration!
