Welcome to the MLA|SLA '23 Submission Site

The 2023 National Program Committee invites abstract submissions that support the annual conference theme of "MLA|SLA '23: Looking Back, Forging Ahead." A few things to note about the contributed content:


  • MLA|SLA '23 will offer a limited number of live virtual immersion, education, and paper sessions. The majority of these sessions will be held at the in-person meeting in Detroit, MI. You will be asked to provide your preference (Live Virtual Session or In-Person Session) for presenting during MLA|SLA '23 on the submission form. If selected, you will confirm your decision in late January 2023.
  • Lightning Talk sessions will be held during live virtual sessions ONLY, and not at the in-person meeting. Lightning Talk and Posters can be submitted in Round 2 beginning December 15, 2022.
  • Accepted presenters will be eligible for a discount. See more information on MLANET.

All MLA|SLA ’23 Round 1 Abstract Submissions now due October 31, 2022. Submit Papers, Immersion Sessions, and Education Sessions during Round 1 using this submission site. The deadline is 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on Monday, October 31, 2022.
