On behalf of the 2019 Evergreen International Conference Planning Committee, I 
would like to announce the official call for proposals for the 2019 conference 
and pre-conferences being held in Valley Forge, PA from April 24 - 27, 2019.

The criteria for submitting program proposals for the 2019 Evergreen 
International Conference and the link to the submission form are available at: 


There are four tracks under which you may submit a proposal:

*        End user: best practices and techniques for using Evergreen in 
day-to-day library operations.

*        General: programs on training, making the decision to move to 
Evergreen, participating in the Evergreen community, and other topics related 
to using Evergreen and open source software in consortial and standalone 

*        Management/Leadership: programs related to the administration, 
management, and leadership of Evergreen systems and staff.

*        Technical: topics related to system administration, software 
development, implementation, hardware, and integration with other software.

You may also submit proposals for Pre-Conference workshops.  Pre-Conference 
workshops are 3 hours long, in order to go more in-depth on the topic or 
training.  They take place the day before the conference begins (April 24, 
2018) and are offered at an additional registration cost.  There are slots for 
four pre-conference workshops.  Note:  Pre-Conference proposals are due earlier 
than other proposals.

appropriate for the conference program (no more than 200 words), and the names, 
institutions, job titles and email addresses of those who will be presenting
