IFLA WLIC 2018 Kuala LumpurTwenty five Call for Papers have already been released from a host of IFLA Sections and Special Interest Group (SIGs) offering a fantastic opportunity to present to an international Library and Information Service audience during IFLA’s World Congress 2018 in Kuala Lumpur 24 – 30 August 2018. More are on the way!


There is an array of exciting and thought-provoking themes this year, such as:

  • Video Games: Winning strategies for libraries
  • Designing inclusive libraries
  • Librarian Fashion: What does the way we dress say about us?
  • Sanctuaries in the city: the public library as a safe space
  • National Bibliographies: Forging a Path to Access to Information 

And these are just for starters! See the full offer on the Open Session and Satellite Meeting Call for Papers webpages and, furthermore, the invitation is open to all. So it doesn’t matter if this is your first conference or your 21st, whether you’ve presented ten times or are a complete novice, our IFLA Sections and SIGs look forward to receiving your proposals.


Presenting on any platform comes with many benefits; presenting on an international stage sees these benefits amplified. Not only does your own professional and personal development grow but presenting at the IFLA World Congress can also promote and shine a light on your library or organisation. This is your chance to tell the world the ideas, stories, and breakthroughs happening in your country, right now!

Good luck!
