We encourage the submission of innovative and creative proposals for the 2020 Annual American Library Association Conference. We’re looking for 60-minute presentations that focus on the current or future use of technology in libraries. We strongly encourage presenters from underrepresented groups to submit proposals.

Proposals are accepted via a submission form that requires you to have an ALA account but does not require you to be an ALA member. This link to the submission site will start you at the ALA login page.

Learn more about the form and what makes a proposal successful.

We welcome proposals from anyone who feels they have something to offer regarding library technology. We look forward to hearing the great ideas you’ll share with us this year.
