Vote for the CALIcon14 Sessions You’d Like to See!

Symbol kept vote Green With over 90 sessions proposed and only 55 slots over 3 conference days a lot of tough decisions need to be made in assembling the agenda for CALIcon14. You can help by voting for the sessions you would like to see included in the agenda. Your votes are one factor we consider when deciding which sessions to accept for the CALIcon. Given the number of proposed sessions this year voting will be a major factor in selecting sessions.

Voting is easy. Start with the Proposed Sessions list and click on the title of the session you would like to see on the CALIcon agenda. At the bottom of the session description click on the “Vote for this session” link to cast your vote. That’s it, your vote is recorded. You do not need to be logged in to vote, you may vote for as many sessions as you like, and we track IP addresses of votes so if you’re going to stuff the ballot box you’ll need to get creative.

Everyone should vote even if you are not planning on making the trip to Harvard because all sessions will be recorded and made available on the net. That means you should vote for sessions that interest you because if the session is accepted you’ll be able to watch the recording even if you miss it live. For folks attending CALIcon14, tools for creating custom schedules and rating sessions will be available later.

Voting will remain open through Friday April 18, 2014.
