Poster Sessions

Are you involved in an interesting project or in an area of work that you would like to discuss with or show to other congress attendees? Why not present your work in the IFLA Poster Session?


Your topic could be described on a printed poster or by photographs, graphics and pieces of text that you attach to the presentation panel. All IFLA official languages—Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Russian and Spanish—are welcome. Presenters of a poster will be expected to be present on Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 August 2012 in order to explain their poster and to hand out any leaflets or other information material they have available for viewers of their poster.

During the Closing Session of the conference, an Award for Best Poster is given.  Criteria for the award is based upon: content, appearance, informative quality, and presentation.

Conference participants interested in presenting a poster session are requested to complete the application (see link below) and send it together with a brief description of not more than 200 words of the poster (we would appreciate receiving a summary in English with your proposal). The deadline is 09 March 2012, after the deadline applications will no longer be accepted. A jury comprised of two members from IFLA's Professional Committee will review all submissions.
