Submit a Poster Session

The Illinois Library Association (ILA) Conference Program Committee invites applications for poster sessions at the 2019 ILA Annual Conference at the Tinley Park Convention Center. Poster sessions will be held in the exhibit hall on Wednesday, October 23, and Thursday, October 24.

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 Wednesday, July 31, 2019.

Please note: only Illinois library staff, trustees, students, etc. may apply. Vendors and others who offer services for a fee should consider a booth in the exhibit hall.
