The theme for this year’s conference is…
THE NEXT WAVE
CALI has been around for over 30 years. In that time, it has pioneered technology in legal education and in applications that improve access to justice and has worked with the innovators and early adopters in those fields. And now, excitingly, the next wave is here. Technology isn’t just something for hard core Teknoids. It’s become accessible and accepted in the law school and legal environments.
We know that you need to be looking out for the next wave. Much like waves constantly coming into shore, waves of change are constantly hitting legal education. How you approach them matters. To some people they may feel like tsunamis that are going to destroy everything and their inclination is to run and hide from them. Some people are going to hold fast and then be gradually eroded away and altered by the constant wave action. And some people are going to want to swim out to meet the waves and ride in on them on a surf board.
For 24 years, the CALI Conference has organized its schedule at nearly the last minute in order to bring the most relevant and up-to-date presentations to attendees. This year is no different and we are looking for law school faculty, librarians, and technologists with strong opinions, great ideas, interesting projects and useful advice. Come and share and be challenged. If you are willing and able to speak, your conference registration fee is just $95!
All sessions are 1 hour long. Everything will be recorded and posted online.
To propose a session, just visit http://conference.cali.org/2014, create an account, login, and click on the “Propose a session” link. Sessions need to be submitted by Friday April 4, 2014. All sessions need to be submitted through the CALI conference website.
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 4, 2014, voting will be opened and will remain open through Friday April 18, 2014. 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 2, 2014 if their session is approved. The listing of approved sessions will be posted on the conference website on May 2, 2014.
Conference hotel and registration information will be available at http://conference.cali.org/2014 shortly.
