Vote for the Sessions You Want to Go to at Annual!

Public voting closed on March 31, 2013 for 36 talks in two formats to determine which sessions will be added to this year’s Annual Conference program.

For the second year, we opened a general call for “Conversation Starter” talks, fast-paced 45-minute sessions intended to jumpstart conversations and highlight emerging topics and trends.

We’re also running a series of Ignite sessions that give presenters five minutes to share what they’re most passionate about in the library world and inspire an audience to join them. Ignite speakers present for exactly five minutes, accompanied by 20 slides. Each slide is displayed for 15 seconds, with slides advancing automatically.

The public votes will be weighted for 30% of the selection process; staff votes will account for another 30%, while the remaining 40% will be decided by an advisory group of ALA members. We'll notify selected presenters by April 5, 2013.
