Presentations

There are two sessions for poster presentations, each two hours long:

  • Monday, 17 August 12:00 to 14:00
  • Tuesday, 18 August 12:00 to 14:00

During these times, it is necessary that the poster presenter be at their poster location in the Exhibit Hall, ready to discuss its contents with delegates.
Each presenter can therefore only present one poster.

Preparing your poster

Well-designed posters are a combination of excellent content and organized appearance. The content should 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.

Poster presenters often provide handouts, leaflets, or pamphlets containing additional information, to further explain or promote the contents of the poster.  It is important to bring reasonable quantities of these handouts to provide to delegates, as copying facilities are not available on-site.  3500-4000 delegates are expected to attend WLIC this year.

A jury from the Professional Committee Poster will monitor the efficiency and utility of poster presentations. They will select “Best IFLA Poster 2020,” the winner will be receive an award during the Closing Session on Thursday, 20 August 2020.
