Call for Proposals - Access 2016 - Canada's Library Technology Conference

The Access 2016 Program Committee invites proposals for participation in this year's Access Conference, which will be held on the beautiful campus of the University of New Brunswick in the hip city of Fredericton, New Brunswick from 4-7 October.

There's no special theme to this year's conference, but—in case you didn't know—Access is Canada's annual library technology conference, so ... we're looking for presentations about cutting-edge library technologies that would appeal to librarians, technicians, developers, programmers, and managers.

Access is a single-stream conference that will feature 

•  45-minute sessions,

•  lightning talks (speakers have five minutes to talk while slides—20 in total—automatically advance every 15 seconds),

•  a half-day workshop on the last day of the conference,

•  and maybe a surprise or two: if you have a bright idea for something different (panel, puppet show, etc.), we'd love to hear it

To submit your proposal, please fill out the form at by 15 April.

Please take a look at the Code of Conduct too: 

If you have any questions, check out our site at or write to David Ross (Chair of the Program Committee) at

We're looking forward to hearing from you!
