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 Sessions?

Format Presentation

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.

For printed posters, the standard poster size of DIN A0 841mm wide x 1189mm high is the minimum size. It is recommended that a printed poster be no larger than 900mm wide and 1900mm high.
If you are using photographs, graphics and pieces of text, these should also fit within the area of 900mm wide and 1900mm high.

Presenters of a poster will be expected to be present on Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 August 2016 in order to explain their poster and to hand out any leaflets, or other information materials, they have available for viewers of their poster. Each presenter can therefore only present one poster. Any organization that submits more than one application should indicate a priority to their submissions or confirm there will be enough staff members available for the presentation.

All Poster Proposals are subject to approval by IFLA’s Professional Committee. Please complete the application form to submit a proposal.

It is important that applicants describe how they intend to illustrate the project in the poster format. The poster has to be an experience in itself for the one who looks at it – and should show awareness of the format of a poster-session and its purpose.

Special consideration will be given to ensure that a variety of topics and geographical/cultural range will be represented.

The deadline is 01 February 2016. After the deadline applications will no longer be accepted.

A jury representing the IFLA Professional Committee will review all submissions and decide which Posters will be accepted.

At the congress in 2016 the jury will select the winner of the Best IFLA Poster 2016 based on the criteria below:
Does the topic of the poster:

    Look interesting and/or inspiring;
    Look lively;
    Lend itself to a poster session; is not too abstract;
    Present new ideas or present an application of technology;
    Appear to be clearly explained;
    Not duplicate another poster, nor have the same presenter as another poster (a presenter must be present during the poster session to explain the poster to viewers);
    Have a relationship to the theme of the WLIC;
    Have a clear library relevance or perspective;
    Describe a project that is ongoing or near completion, not one that is yet to start.


Please complete the online application form

01 February 2016 Deadline for receipt at IFLA Headquarters of the application form and a detailed description of the poster session.
