I have things to say! How can I become a presenter?
Submit your proposal through our Call for Papers form. The proposal deadline is Friday, July 17. The conference planning committee will review all proposals and will send out decisions the week of July 27 – 31.
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.

Help! I'm a first time attendee!
Also, read “What To Do When You’re In Charleston” whether this is your first or 35th time attending. It’s packed with restaurant recommendations, activities, and local flavor.
Do you have future conference dates planned?
The 2015 conference will be held November 4 – 7. Future dates through 2020 are on the books.
