We have extended the deadline for prepared talk proposals for  
Code4lib 2006. [1]
The new proposal deadline is January 9, 2006, 5pm EST and proposers  
will be
notified by Midnight EST January 9, 2006.

Code4lib 2006 is a loosely structured conference for library  
technologists to
commune, gather/create/share ideas and software, be inspired, and forge
collaborations. It is also an outgrowth of the Access HackFest,  
wrapped into
a conference-ish format. It is *the* event for technologists building
digital libraries and digital information systems, tools, and software.

At least six time slots will be available for prepared talks. We will  
choose
from among the proposals based on diversity of topics, usefulness, wow
factor, and potential impact.

Proposals of 75 words or less are being accepted for review now.  
Please send
your name, email address, and proposal to code4libcon. [2]

We cannot accept every prepared talk proposal, but multiple lightning  
talk
sessions will provide everyone who wishes to present with ample  
opportunity
to show off.

Prepared Talk Information

Prepared talks are 20 minutes, and must center on "tools" (some cool new
software, software library or integration platform), "specs" (how to  
get the
most out of some protocols, or proposals for new ones), or  
"challenges" (One
or more big problems we should collectively address). We will evaluate
proposals on criteria of usefulness, newness, geekiness, and  
diversity of
topics.
