Please carefully read the information below

The list of accepted posters presentations is available on the Poster Sessions webpage.

There are two sessions for poster presentations, each two hours long: 12:00 to 14:00 on Wednesday  27 and Thursday 28 July 2022. During these times there will be many delegates walking around the Hall and you are therefore required to be present to discuss your poster with any delegates that are interested to know more.

The poster numbers, corresponding to numbered boards at the congress venue, are allocated and published on the Poster Sessions webpage.

Material has to be posted to the boards in the Exhibition area, located on the ground level of the Conference centre.

If you choose to register with day registrations, you do not need to register for the set-up day (Tuesday 26 July).

The posters should remain on display until Thursday 28 July 2022 and ideally should be removed between 14:00 and 15:00 on that day, at the latest.

From 15:00 all posters not removed will be discarded and thrown away. There is no storage space and therefore any handouts, leaflets or other material that is not fixed to the board should be brought with you on the Poster Session days.


Poster Board Specifications 

The available poster boards are 950mm wide and 2250mm high portrait style.

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.

Posters have to be fixed onto the boards by means of double-faced adhesive tape, which will be provided on site.


Posters in the IFLA Repository

IFLA is interested in obtaining digital copies of presented posters in the born digital format – JPG, PNG or PDF – and publishing them with their abstract in the IFLA Repository after the Conference.

  1. Please send your final digital Poster (JPG, PNG or PDF) with an Abstract (in MS word, of no more than 300 words) to: [email protected] for publishing.
  2. Please complete the online Authors’ permission form as publication of this material can not proceed until this form is submitted
  3. Deadline for submitting the Poster with an Abstract for publication: 30 September 2022.


See published Posters of the 2019 Conference in the IFLA Libary:

In addition to the digital poster, presenters are asked to include an abstract (in MS word) of no more than 300 words.


Preparing your poster

Posters are a combination of content and appearance. The content must be interesting, professional, and appealing to a broad audience. The appearance of the posters should be attractive, with a combination of graphics, photographs, and text. The presenters of posters often make available to delegates handouts: leaflets containing more information, printed pamphlets, or other types of material for distribution, which might explain or promote the contents of the poster. It is important to bring reasonable quantities of these handouts, and note that free copying facilities are not provided by the congress.


Best IFLA Poster 2022

Poster sessions will be monitored by the Professional Committee’s jury to check on the efficiency and utility of the model for presenting information to the library community during the Congress. They will also select a winner of the “Best IFLA Poster 2022” which will be awarded during the Closing Session on Thursday 28 July 2022.
