Call for Poster Sessions



An alternative approach for the presentation of projects/new work will be available for conference participants. An area on the conference premises has been designated for the presentation of information regarding projects or activities of interest to librarians.


The theme "Libraries beyond libraries: Integration, Innovation and Information for all" may be presented by a printed poster or by photographs, graphics and texts attached on the given panel. Presentations are welcome in any of the official IFLA languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Russian and Spanish.


Presenters of poster sessions will be expected to be present on Monday and Tuesday, 15-16 August 2011 in order to explain their poster and hand out available leaflets and other information material. Further advice on poster sessions may be obtained from IFLA Headquarters. The Professional Committee of IFLA will review all submissions.
