Call for IFLA Poster Presentations 2009
The theme of the 75th IFLA General Conference is “Libraries create futures: Building on cultural heritage”. The conference will be held 23-27 August 2009, in Milan, Italy
Here is information on the 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 may be presented by a printed poster or by photographs, graphics and texts attached on the given panel. All IFLA official languages - Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Russian and Spanish - are welcome. Presenters of a poster session will be expected to be present on Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 August 2009 in order to explain their poster and to 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.
Colleagues interested in presenting a poster session are invited to complete the relevant form and send it together with a brief description of not more than 200 words of the session (we would appreciate receiving a summary in English, with your proposal).
