The IFLA Health and Biosciences Libraries Section (HBS) invites expressions of interest to host the 14th International Congress on Medical Librarianship (ICML) in 2026.  The ICML takes place in a city selected through a competitive process.

The Congress normally attracts 500+ attendees from around the world.

The host organization will be responsible for the Congress budget which will be generated from delegate registrations, exhibition sales, sponsorship, and industry and government support.

The Congress program runs over several days, usually Monday to Friday, including plenary and concurrent sessions, posters, continuing education seminars/workshops, tours, and a trade exhibition.  The host organization is responsible for working with the Congress Planning Committee (CPC).

Full details on the host call can be found on the IFLA Health and Biosciences Section website.

Expressions of interests with all required information should be submitted by 31 August 2022 to Professor Bethany S. McGowan, Chair, IFLA Health & Biosciences Libraries Section; email bmcgowa@purdue.edu.
