Call for Speakers: CALI Conference -- Some Assembly Required

CALIThe 22d Annual Conference for Law School Computing will be held Thursday, June 21 through Saturday June 23 in San Diego at Thomas Jefferson School of Law (and its fabulous new building).  The theme of this year's conference is "Some Assembly Required":

We are constructing our future, here in the present. We have many excellent technologies, but figuring out how to use them to serve the educational, scholarly, professional and public service missions of law school is an ongoing challenge. This year’s theme is a double entendre meant to explicitly evoke that our future is not pre-packaged or purchased from a vendor -- some assembly is required to make the pieces fit into our institutional cultures. Secondly, face-to-face meetings are still necessary in education, community-building and friendships. We need to assemble with each other to make connections and share experiences, so come assemble with your colleagues and friends - new and old in San Diego.

For 22 years, the CALI Conference has organized its schedule at nearly the last minute in order to bring the most relevant and up-to-date presentations to attendees. This year is no different and we are looking for people with strong opinions, great ideas, interesting projects and useful advice. Come and share and be challenged. If you are willing and able to speak, your conference registration fee is FREE!

CALI has issued a Call for Speakers to law faculty, librarians, and IT staff.   The deadline for proposals is April 1. (Disclosure:  I am Vice President of the CALI Board of Directors.)
