I HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT PRESENTING!

See our Speaker Info page and our Presenter FAQ page.

ARE COVID-19 VACCINATIONS REQUIRED TO ATTEND?

No, we will not check COVID-19 vaccination status. We strongly recommend that attendees are vaccinated, and test before traveling.

ARE MASKS REQUIRED?

Face masks are encouraged while indoors where a safe distance cannot be maintained. Please respect others’ choices for social interaction and safety protection measures. 

WAIVER

Attendees must sign a digital waiver acknowledging that they understand the inherent risk of exposure in travel and attending the conference. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I LOSE MY CONFERENCE BADGE?

Come by either the Registration Check-In Desk at the Francis Marion Hotel or the Information Desk at the Gaillard Center to get a replacement badge. 

MAY I BRING A GUEST TO THE IN-PERSON CONFERENCE?

Registered attendees may bring a “plus one” to the Conference Reception. The guest will need to arrive with the registered attendee who can show their conference badge upon entry. Guests will not be permitted to attend any other conference sessions.

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 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:

 

HELP! I’M A FIRST TIME ATTENDEE!
