Call for Proposals: Academic Library 2.0 Conference at UC Berkeley

There is a call for proposals for what promises to be a highly intriguing future-of-the-library conference on the Berkeley campus:

The LAUC-B 2007 Conference Planning Committee is seeking proposals for break-out sessions for the upcoming LAUC-B conference on the theme of "Academic Library 2.0". The conference will be held November 2, 2007 at the Clark Kerr convention center in Berkeley, CA.

The theme of the conference encompasses, but is not limited to the following, as they relate to academic libraries:
* blogs and vlogs
* wikis
* podcasts
* photo and videosharing: Flickr, Picasa, and YouTube
* social bookmarking
* tagging and folksonomies
* user-driven comment, rating, and recommender systems
* the "wisdom of crowds" and/or "radical trust"
* new user habits, behaviors, and expectations
* user-centered, socially-driven services
* user-created web content

Break-out sessions will be an hour and a half, and should engage their audiences with interactive components. The committee is particularly interested in proposals discussing practical projects, and in those offering hands-on experience to their audience.

To submit a proposal, complete the form at the following URL by April 1, 2007:

You may submit more than one proposal, but please use a separate form for each proposal submitted.

Best wishes,
Karen Munro
