Call for Proposals

We welcome proposals from the Blacklight community for three kinds of sessions - 7-minute lightning talks, 75-minute breakout sessions (including discussions, coding sessions, or other ideas), and 3-hour workshops. To submit a proposal, please use the proposal form below, or open the proposal form in a new window.


A draft schedule is available at: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XY9i89PRD_3RlCstl1w6Yrz2L4h-HbQsYwdrqyHoFO8

All participants are invited to give a lightning talk. A lightning talk is a five to seven minute presentation on a compelling topic related to cultural heritage imaging, your work, or that of your organization. Slides and demos are encouraged, but a free-form talk is also great. The goal is to introduce yourself, stimulate thought and generate ideas for meeting sessions.
