Netspeed 2017: Keynote Speakers and Call for Proposals
March 28, 2017
NETSPEED 2017: October 3 & 4, University of Alberta, Edmonton AB
We are excited to report that we have secured our keynote speakers for Netspeed 2017!
Shaun Gouglas, associate professor at the University of Alberta and expert on video games and learning, will be our closing keynote speaker on October 4th and presenting a new look at cross-sectoral collaboration via video games.
Call for Proposals – Deadline is APRIL 14!
We have our keynote speakers, and it’s time to build the full program. We’re on the hunt for librarians, library technicians, and others who work in or with the library industry to step forward! We’re looking for people who are passionate about technology in libraries to present at our conference.
Netspeed brings together library professionals from both academic and public libraries to discuss trends, developments, innovations, research, and practical matters related to library technologies. We provide sessions for different interests, uses, and levels of knowledge. We’re focused on creating a forum for discovery, collaboration, and conversation – an event where we can geek out about the latest exciting gadgets and hash through some of the tough social questions our work often generates.
If you work in or research libraries and have something to say or share about library technology, then we want to hear from you!

Proposals will be accepted until 5:00pm MST on Friday April 14th.
