Call for Poster Session IFLA 2011 in Puerto Rico

The 2011 IFLA Conference will be in Puerto Rico. The posters are a good way to show off everything IAMSLIC members are doing especially in Latin America and the Caribbean.

World Library and Information Congress: 77th IFLA General Conference and Council
“Libraries beyond libraries: Integration, Innovation and Information for all ”
13-18 August 2011, San Juan, Puerto Rico

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 Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 August 2011 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.

Colleagues interested in presenting a poster session are invited to complete the application form 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 11 February 2011, after the deadline applications will no longer be accepted. A jury comprised of 2 members of the Professional Committee of IFLA will review all submissions.

The application form can be found at:
