The Library and Research Services for Parliaments Section (IFLAPARL) has announced that its 36th Pre-Conference will be hosted by the Houses of the Oireachtas Service, Dublin, Ireland, from 12 – 13 August 2020.

The planning for the 2020 Conferences is quite far advanced with the generous cooperation of the Houses of the Oireachtas Service. Calls for papers have been issued for both the pre-conference (due 31 March) and WLIC 2020 IFLAPARL open session (deadline was 6 March ). The arrangements for Pre-Conference registration are underway: it is strongly advised to complete an expression of interest before 22 March.

The form to express an interest, together with all essential information, is on the. IFLAPARL 2020 site. There are three steps to registration:

  1. You express an interest before 22 March, with no commitment (Request a Place);
  2. We confirm a pre-registered place sometime afterwards, probably in
    March/April, and you accept and can make firm travel plans, or decline the
