MDLS is typically a 2-day conference, how many days would you be interested in attending or would be easiest to attend given work schedules?

MDLS is historically an unconference format, given that the 2020 conference will be virtual - What types of sessions are you interested in having?
Keep the unconference format - use breakout rooms or other small group activities/discussion
Traditional conference format - Presenters, panels, or workshops only to avoid technical difficulties of breakout rooms/participation virtually
Traditional conference format - but with a few shorter sessions of flash/lighting talks to encourage sharing/networking
What types of social events would you be interested in and willing to attend after the conference?
Birds-of-a-feather or topic tables
Virtual game night
Virtual happy hour or ‘dine-arounds’
Virtual craft / art nights
Netflix party / screening
Annotation hour / wiki edit-a-thon
I would prefer to have social activities over the lunch hour rather than after the conference day.
I would prefer to not have any social activities.
How can we help the virtual experience be fulfilling for you? (E.g. provide a slack workspace to chat with other attendees, etc.)
Are there any particular topics you’d like to see in the call for proposals or for breakout sessions?
The UW-Madison planning committee is willing to help plan the virtual conference, however, we welcome anyone else who is interested. If you are interested in and able to commit to helping plan the virtual conference, please include your contact information below:
