Instructions for accepted posters

Please carefully read the information below

The list of accepted posters will be published on the Lyon congress page on the IFLA website by the end of May 2014. The board numbers, corresponding to numbered boards at the congress venue, will be allocated in the last week of June and also published on the printed programme. Please respect the board number you are given which will correspond to the list in the programme. The boards are located in the corner of the Exhibition Hall behind IFLA’s stand B110.

Material has to be posted to the boards on Sunday 17 August between 13:30 and 15:30 before the Exhibits Opening Party, which takes place in the Exhibition Hall. If you chose to register onsite for day registrations, you will need to register for this day too.

IFLA WLIC 2014 poster board dimensions There is no storage space and therefore any handouts, leaflets or other material that is not fixed to the board should be brought with you on the Poster Session days.

The available poster boards are 92cm wide and 230cm high: portrait style. Posters have to be fixed onto the boards by means of double-faced adhesive tape, which will be provided on site.

There are two sessions for poster presentations, each two hours long: 12:00 to 14:00 on Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 August 2014. During these times there will be many delegates walking around the Hall and you are therefore required to be present to discuss your poster with any delegates that are interested to know more.

The posters should remain on display until Wednesday 20 August and ideally should be removed between 14:00 and 15:00 on that day, at the latest.

Preparing your poster

Posters are a combination of content and appearance. The content must be interesting, professional, and appealing to a broad audience. The appearance of the posters should be attractive, with a combination of graphics, photographs, and text. The presenters of posters often make available to delegates handouts: leaflets containing more information, printed pamphlets, or other types of material for distribution, which might explain or promote the contents of the poster. It is important to bring reasonable quantities of these handouts, and note that free copying facilities are not provided by the congress.

Poster sessions will be monitored by the Professional Committee’s jury to check on the efficiency and utility of the model for presenting information to the library community during the Congress. They will also select a winner of the "Best IFLA Poster 2014" which will be awarded during the Closing Session on Thursday 21 August 2014.
