| Stockholm University Library, with the support of the National Library in Sweden and the Swedish Koha User Group, is proud to announce our proposal to arrange KohaCon in Stockholm 2019. Stockholm University Library has for a long time been actively collaborating around systems and systems development, as well as open source software. We went live with Koha in July 2016, and helped establish the Swedish Koha User Group the same year. Koha is growing rapidly in Sweden (as well as Finland, and other parts of Scandinavia), and we would like to showcase the efforts and commitment that is happening with Koha in our area of the world, as well as give something back to the community!
The proposed location for the main conference is Aula Magna, a large and bright auditorium in the center of Stockholm University Campus. The hackfest will (most likely) take place at the library premises. The Stockholm University Campus is situated in the Royal National City Park, just minutes away from the city center of Stockholm. We would be honored, if we are given the opportunity to host KohaCon 2019!

| Summary: Interleaf Technology Ltd. Dublin Business School and PTFS Europe jointly bid to host Kohacon2019 in Dublin, Ireland.
Interleaf Technology Ltd and PTFS Europe (who provide support services for Koha users in Ireland, the UK and Europe) have teamed up with Dublin Business School (an academic library who uses Koha) in a joint bid to host KohaCon2019.
Dublin Business School’s City Centre location will be an ideal place for delegates to meet and have easy access to all of Dublin’s resources. There are 5 other libraries using Koha within a 15 minute walk of DBS’ location, as well as a myriad of other attractions.
Being an academic institution the proposed location will have all the resources required to support the conference and the hackfest.
