The American Association of School Librarians (AASL) is accepting requests for program and Exploratorium proposals for the 13th National Conference and Exhibition, "The Future Begins @ your library." The conference will be held October 25-28, 2007 in Reno, Nevada.

The AASL National Conference will offer more than 100 75-minute peer-reviewed concurrent sessions. Program content must address at least one of the three areas of responsibility: Learning and Teaching, Information Access, or Program Administration, as identified in AASL's Information Power: Building Partnerships for Learning. The deadline for concurrent session proposals is October 20, 2006.

The Exploratorium is a two-hour session held on October 25, 2007 that offers learning stations (table-top displays) where participants can browse at their own pace. Proposals for Exploratorium stations must exemplify best practices in school librarianship, highlight "@ your library" campaigns, showcase the excellence of school libraries, or present a creative solution to a problem in a school library setting. The deadline for Exploratorium proposals is March 30, 2007.

Proposals for concurrent sessions and the Exploratorium can be submitted online at http://www.ala.org/aasl/reno/. Submission guidelines, topical details, and complete proposal information is available in the "For Presenters" section.
