The ALA International Relations Round Table (IRRT) International Poster Sessions Committee invites you to submit poster session proposals on international themes for the 2017 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago!
The poster session committee encourages submissions from all types of libraries and on any topic relevant to international librarianship. Submissions may include a description of an innovative library program; an analysis of a solution to a problem; a report of a research study; or any other presentation that would benefit the larger library community.
Poster session participants place materials such as pictures, data, graphs, diagrams and narrative text on boards that are usually 4 x 8 feet. During their assigned 1½ hour time periods, participants informally discuss their presentations with conference attendees. Titles/abstracts from previous years are available on ALA Connect (note that this site is only serving as an archive for previous Annual Conference poster sessions – for information on this year's posters, go to the 2017 ALA poster session website).
The deadline for submitting an application is February 3, 2017. Applicants will be notified by the end of March, after a double blind peer review process, whether their submission has been accepted for presentation at the conference. The 2015 ALA Annual Poster Sessions will be held June 24 and 25, 2017 (the Saturday and Sunday of the conference) in the exhibits hall.
Start your application process now. You must create a username and password for the site before you submit your application, you must choose to submit a poster session proposal after you log-in, and you will receive a confirmation e-mail after you have completed your submission.
