I have things to say! How can I become a presenter?
Submit your proposal through our Call for Papers form when it opens in April. The proposal deadline is in mid-July, check our timeline for details. The conference planning committee will review all proposals and will send out decisions by the end of August.
What types of conference sessions will there be?
At Charleston, we like making things fun and exciting. One way we do that is by having several different session formats to shake things up a bit.
I’m a publisher/vendor/consultant. How can I participate?
The conference is designed to put librarians, publishers, and vendors together to discuss issues of importance to us all. Everyone is welcome to participate in conference sessions, but we do ask that multiple viewpoints be represented and do not allow solo presentations from any one company. This is to ensure that conference sessions remain informational in nature and not promotional in any way. For promotional opportunities, see:
