*Deadline Extension for 2021 OLA Annual Conference Proposals – Thursday
Nov. 5th at midnight! *

If you would like to present at the 2021 OLA virtual Annual Conference you
still have time to submit your proposals. This includes those who were
prepared to present at the 2020 OLA Annual Conference. Final date for
submissions (or resubmissions) has been extended to 12:00AM November 5,

Program Proposal Form Link:  https://t.ly/2TzN

 *General submission information:*

· Please be aware that you must be able to present your program in either a
pre-recorded video format or in a live Zoom meeting format (with moderated
chat and/or moderated Q&A) during the conference, whether it features a
single presenter or panelists. The conference A/V coordinators will work
with presenters to provide best practices and technical assistance for
creating the best virtual experience possible for attendees. The conference
committee is exploring all possible options to assist presenters in
creating dynamic and engaging content.

· Be aware that it is unlikely every proposal will be accepted. Strong
proposals covering similar topics may be requested to combine into one
program to provide varying perspectives on the topic and to ensure that we
have room on the schedule for diverse offerings. Program Coordinators will
make every effort to suggest alternative opportunities as appropriate (such
as panel discussions, lightning talks, poster sessions, etc.) to allow for
as much engagement and collaboration as possible at the conference.

· Refer to "Tips for a Great Program Proposal" (on the conference website
and here): https://t.ly/eLhJ
<https://protect-us.mimecast.com/s/QGMWC1wqWjuxOqnTXWyFE> for
recommendations on creating a successful proposal.

If you have questions about this process or other conference program
matters, feel free to contact KT Austin & Christie Christophersen, OLA 2021
conference program coordinators, at olaprograms at olaweb.org.
