Some #code4lib regulars (who also help put on Access up north) have managed to get some space at the Oregon State University in February for code4lib 2006:

code4lib 2006 is a loosely structured conference for library technologists to commune, gather/create/share ideas and software, be inspired, and forge collaborations. It is also an outgrowth of the Access HackFest, wrapped into a conference-ish format. It is the event for technologists building digital libraries and digital information systems, tools, and software.

A call for proposals is out. The nice thing about this conference is that there will be different levels of involvement: from keynote speakers, to shorter presentations, to lightning talks, and with space/time to actually hack at stuff/brainstorm with colleagues.

We’re hoping to attract both library professionals who use computers, and computer professionals who have an interest in libraries. The registration is now open as well at a discounted price. If you are interested in computers and libraries please submit a proposal or register to attend!
