Proposals for KohaCon12

From Koha Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

It's time to start thinking about KohaCon12. Organizations that want to host the event are requested to add the details of their proposal to the table below, and create a separate page for further details. It is customary that the final decision will be made through a vote open to the whole Koha community.

The rules

No single country can host KohaCon two years in a row, so since KohaCon11 is being held in India, proposals from India for KohaCon12 are probably not necessary.

The time

The proposing organization decides what time they want to hold the conference. Some people have expressed their preference in this Doodle poll.


  • Deadline for proposals: 1st September 2011. - This deadline is now passed and it is too late to add more proposals!
  • Deadline for voting: 1st October 2011

The result

Edinburgh, Scotland, UK.
