Call for posters – IAML Prague 2021

The International Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centres (IAML) is pleased to announce the call for posters for the IAML Congress to be held at the Municipal Library of Prague and the National Library of the Czech Republic, Prague, 25-30 July 2021.

Poster sessions offer an alternative approach to the presentation of information relating to specific projects or activities of interest to librarians, archivists and musicologists.  Posters will convey the subject using a combination of graphics and narrative text attached to a presentation panel, and presenters may also distribute relevant handouts.  A table for handouts, business cards, and sign-up sheets will be provided if required.  The presenter(s) must be in attendance throughout the designated time to answer questions and elaborate on the presentation’s topic.  Posters may be presented in any of IAML's official languages: English, French, or German.

IAML members and non-members may submit proposals and the Congress is open to anyone with an interest in the field.  

We strongly encourage applicants for the cancelled 2020 Congress to resubmit their proposals.

Deadline for submission of proposals: Sunday 31 January 2021 (midnight UTC).

Submissions will be evaluated by the members of the IAML Forum of Sections.  Authors of the selected posters will receive guidelines concerning effective preparation, presentation, and relevant dimensions. 

Applicants will be notified of the results of the selection process by Monday 1 March 2021.
