Unfortunately, the Programme Committee has no funds to assist prospective authors: abstracts should only be submitted on the understanding that the expenses of attending the Milan conference (including travel, expenses and conference fee) will be the responsibility of the author(s)/presenter(s) of accepted papers.
Some national professional associations may be able to help fund certain expenses, and a small number of grants for conference attendance maybe available from IFLA as well as from the Comité français IFLA (French Committee of IFLA) and from the Vereniging Openbare Bibliotheken (Dutch Association for Public Libraries).
