 *World Library and Information congress*

*80th IFLA General Council and Congress*

*“Libraries, Citizens and Societies: Confluence for Knowledge”*

16-22 August 2014, Lyon, France.

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?

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. Presenters of a poster will be expected to be
present on Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 August 2014 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.

*Conference participants interested in presenting a poster should complete
the  online registration form

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 poster

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

The deadline is* 03 February 2014*, after the deadline applications will no
longer be accepted. A jury comprised of 2 members of the IFLA Professional
Committee will review all submissions and at the congress they will select
the winner of the *Best IFLA Poster 2014* based on the following criteria:

*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.*
