ELAG 2020 is cancelled

The organisers and programme committee of ELAG 2020 have decided to cancel this year’s conference. The ELAG 2020 conference was due to take place June 9-12, 2020 at the National Library of Latvia in Riga. Facing the uncertainties around the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2) we concluded it’s best to postpone ELAG 2020 to 2021.

We would like to thank everyone who submitted proposals for the conference! We hope to see you all next year in Riga. We will soon begin discussing a date for the next ELAG meeting and will inform you as soon as there are any news.

Stay safe and healthy and see you next year!

How can you contribute to ELAG!

The next ELAG conference will take place in Riga, Latvia from 09 to 12 June 2020.

You can contribute to the ELAG conference in several ways by submitting: 

  • A presentation proposal:  They are the core of the ELAG programme. Presentations allow you to present your work in 25 minutes in a plenary session. After which there are 5 minutes for questions.  
  • A workshop proposal: Workshops are run throughout the main ELAG programme and are used for group discussions on a selected topic. The workshop leader acts as the moderator of these discussions. Workshops are split into 2 sessions on 2 days of 1.5 hours each. On the last day the participants of the workshop need to present a short 10-15 minute summary about the results of the workshop during the plenary session.
  • A bootcamp proposal: Bootcamp start on the day before the conference. They typically provide hands-on training on software, tools relevant to the community. Bootcamps can be short (2-3 hours) or take a whole day (6 hours).  

Some ideas and previous topics for workshops and bootcamps: DevOps & infrastructure bootcamp, Fail4Lib (history of fails in your software projects), deep learning in libraries, a deep dive into tools like Ansible, Apache Nifi, and Catmandu; or other!
