The Illinois Library Association (ILA) Conference Program Committee invites applications for poster sessions at the 2018 ILA Annual Conference at the Peoria Civic Center. Poster sessions will be held in the exhibit hall on Wednesday, October 10, and Thursday, October 11.

Submissions are invited from all types of libraries and on any topic relevant to librarianship and 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 populate boards (4 x 8 feet) with pictures, data, graphs, diagrams, narrative text and more and informally discuss their presentations with conference attendees during an assigned 90-minute time period.

The Poster Session Committee will consider the quality of the research, program or project as presented in the abstract in making its decisions. Applications are due by Tuesday, July 31, 2018. Click here to submit a proposal. 

Please note: only library staff, trustees, students, etc. may apply. Vendors and others who offer services for a fee should consider a booth in the exhibit hall. For tips on putting together an effective poster session, please go here.
