We would like to warmly thank everyone who volunteered to give a presentation, lead a discussion, or conduct a workshop at KohaCon. Without you, the program wouldn’t be as impressive as it’s turning out to be and we are delighted with the diversity of topics presented. We had some tough choices to make, and unfortunately, not everyone will be able to give their presentation this year. We hope those who were not included in the program this year will not be discouraged and will consider submitting their presentation ideas to future KohaCons.

You can review the preliminary program and see for yourself the variety of topics covered and the wealth of expertise our colleagues are ready to share with us.

The first two days are dedicated to presentations and B-side discussions and will be held at the Coeur des sciences de l’UQAM, at 200 Sherbrooke Street West. Presentations will be given in the amphitheater, while B-side discussions and coffee breaks will take place in the multipurpose room.

One day during the week is reserved for exploring the host city. We are organizing activities to help visitors discover Montreal. Stay tuned to sign up when the activities are announced.

The last two days are dedicated to teamwork and the sharing of technical knowledge for improving Koha. Workshops on various topics will be led by community members to help beginners contribute to Koha and to share tips with more advanced users for improving work efficiency. A room will also be dedicated to the “hackfest” part, where people can work alone or in groups on bugs and improvements to Koha.
