To all doctoral students:

As co-chair of the upcoming Library 2.013 worldwide virtual conference, I
would like to encourage you to submit a brief presentation abstract for the
Library 2.013 conference about your dissertation research ‹ at whatever
stage it is in (e.g., literature review, methodology development,
preliminary findings, theoretical framework, etc).  The Doctoral Student
Research strand of the conference is new this year and we'd love for you to
be part of it.  The previous two conferences reached a broad international
audience -- attracting more than 10,000 people from 160 countries.  The
Library 2.013 Worldwide Virtual Conference will be held online via web
conferencing, with presentations held in multiple languages and scheduled
around the clock over the course of two days. You can log in anytime from
the comfort of your home, office, or favorite coffee shop. Plus, it's a free
conference so encourage others to support you and participate too.

This is a great opportunity to present your research in a non-threatening
environment, get feedback from global professionals and scholars, get
experience presenting online, expand your resume, and get a recorded link to
your presentation and discussion.  For more information about presentation
guidelines and submittal instructions, please visit the conference website
at: http://www.library20.com/page/proposal-submission-2013  The deadline for
submitting abstracts is September 30th.
