Instructions for accepted posters

Please carefully read the information below

The list of accepted posters presentations with board numbers is now available on the Cape Town Poster Sessions webpage.

The board numbers, corresponding to numbered boards at the congress venue will be published on the printed programme as well.

For your  poster board number  please visit the Poster Session webpage.

Please respect the board number you are given which will correspond to the list in the programme. The boards are located in the "Poster Area" of the Exhibition Hall (see Floor plan).

Material has to be posted to the boards on Sunday 16 August 2015 between 12:00 and 16:00 before the Exhibits Opening Party, which takes place in the Exhibition Hall.

If you chose to register onsite for day registrations, you will not have to register for this day too.

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.

IFLA WLIC 2015 poster board dimensionsThe available poster boards are 964mm wide and 2300mm 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 17 and Tuesday 18 August 2015. 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 19 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 2015" which will be awarded during the Closing Session on Thursday 20 August 2015.
