We’re seeking volunteers with a wide variety of skills and backgrounds to join the Program Committee for the 2020 LD4 Conference: May 13th and 14th, 2020, in College Station, Texas, USA, at the Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center at Texas A&M University. The Linked Data for Production initiative, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is hosting this conference to bring together anyone passionate about the adoption of linked data in libraries. There were quite a few sessions on Wikidata during the 2019 conference, so we expect it will also be well-represented in 2020.

Our contemporary venue accommodates up to 200 people, with flexibility for multiple simultaneous activities and proximity to local cultural attractions. What kind of community meeting space would you like to create? How can this community gathering best advance the adoption of linked data in all kinds of libraries? Join the Program Committee and shape an event you are excited to participate in!

To serve on the Program Committee, you should plan to attend the conference in College Station, Texas on May 13th and 14th, 2020, and be available for bi-weekly teleconference calls beginning in September. 

Fill in this short form by September 6th to indicate your interest in joining the Program Committee. Committee members will be selected based on a diversity of skills, interests, and backgrounds and will be notified by September 13th.

For those not joining the Program Committee, keep an eye out for a call for proposals and other announcements about the 2020 LD4 Conference!
