CALIcon15 Call for Speakers

CALL FOR SPEAKERS

The 25th Annual Conference for Law School Computing
Sturm College of Law, University of Denver
Thursday – Saturday, June 18-20, 2015

Conference website at http://conference.cali.org/2015

For the 25th Annual Conference for Law School Computing® (aka CALIcon), we wanted a theme that embraced the changes and opportunities in Legal Education. Yes, we are in a crisis, but we are also in the middle of one of the most innovative and experimental periods in legal education history.  The freedom and encouragement to change our pedagogies and curricula has been given like never before. Flipped classrooms, experiential learning, incubators, formative assessment – the list goes on and on.

With so many changes and techniques, we couldn’t pick just one for a theme.

So we picked them all.

The theme for this year’s conference is…

#SuperCALIFlippalisticExperientiallyDistruptalicious

CALL FOR SPEAKERS

We are looking for law school faculty, librarians, and technologists with strong opinions, great ideas, interesting projects and useful advice to present at CALIcon.  We deliberately ask for presentations at this seemingly late date in order to get the most cutting edge ideas and techniques for our attendees.  So come share and be challenged. If you are willing and able to speak, your conference registration fee is just $95!

To propose a session, just visit http://conference.cali.org/2015, create an account if you didn’t attend last year’s CALIcon, login, and click on the “Propose a session” link. All sessions are 1 hour long. Please be advised that all sessions are recorded and posted online.

Sessions need to be submitted by Friday April 3, 2015 through the CALI conference website.

SESSION SELECTION

We are going to use community voting to help with selecting sessions again this year. Your votes let us know which sessions you would like to see on the conference agenda. Starting on Friday April 3, 2015, voting will be opened and will remain open for 2 weeks through Friday April 17, 2015. The number of votes for a session will be taken into consideration as part of the session acceptance process and to help with scheduling. To vote you will just need to login to the conference website and vote for the sessions you would like to see on the agenda. You do not need to be registered for the conference to vote.

We will notify speakers via email by May 1, 2015 if their session is accepted. The listing of accepted sessions will be posted on the conference website on May 1, 2015.
