Howdy folks.

Just wanted to remind folks that we changed the timeline for CALIcon this
year. Session proposals need to be submitted through the website by Friday
March 2, 2018. That's a mere 7 weeks away.

I know there is a lot of interesting tech stuff going on out there, from VR
courtrooms to teaching practice tech to law students to wrestling with exam
software and more. All of it will make for great sessions at CALIcon18 but
you've got to submit those proposals now.

Here's the original Call for Presenters from a month ago with all the


American University
Washington College of Law
Washington DC
Thursday - Friday
June 7-8, 2018

Conference website at http://2018.calicon.org/

The theme for this year's conference is...

Engaging Law Students With Tech

Kids born in 2000 are now entering college.  Who are these people
coming to law schools in 2018?  How do we engage them?  Time and
attention are the new scarcities.  Traditional legal education
curriculum and materials are not designed to compete for the time and
attention of modern millennials. Sometimes, it's about the tech and
almost always it's through some kind of tech-enabled system that we
must engage.  Find out how CALI and law schools are doing this.

For over 25 years, CALIcon 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 with 30 minute breaks between sessions.
Almost everything will be recorded and posted online.

To propose a session, just visit
http://2018.calicon.org/propose-a-session/, log in (remember to create
an account), and fill out the form. Sessions need to be submitted by
Friday March 2, 2018. All sessions need to be submitted through the
CALIcon18 website.

We are going to use community voting to help with selecting sessions
this year. Your votes let us know which sessions you would like to see
on the conference agenda. Starting on Friday March 2, 2018 voting will
be opened and will remain open until Friday March 16, 2018. 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 visit 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 March 30, 2018 if their session
is accepted. The listing of accepted sessions will be posted on the
conference website on March 30, 2018.

Conference hotel and registration information is available at
