The call for submissions is now closed. Thanks to everyone who submitted a proposal!

We are now opening the call for presentation proposals for Samvera Virtual Connect 2019 (April 23rd & 24th, 2019).  

Samvera Virtual Connect provides the Samvera Community with a cost-effective, informal opportunity to share the work occurring in our institutions and via our collaborative efforts.  Virtual Connect occurs entirely online, from your desk. Those delivering talks will present via to a live audience across the globe, and will have their presentations recorded for asynchronous viewing.

We’re looking for submissions from across the entire Samvera landscape, including both local development and community work, as well as reports from Interest and Working Groups.
