Call for posters – Stellenbosch 2024

The IAML Congress will take place at Stellenbosch University, South Africa from 23 until 28 June 2024.

Paper and poster proposals are invited on subjects related to music in libraries, archives and documentation centres, including (but not limited to): collection management, professional development, music bibliography, cataloguing and classification, music encoding, MIR, digital humanities, AI, copyright, user and public engagement, musicological research, the impact of Covid-19, performance ephemera, and digital resources, as well as presentations of a more general nature addressing issues of professional concern to the music library community. Proposals that seek to encourage discussion and audience interaction are especially welcome.

As this will be the first IAML congress on the African continent, we strongly encourage proposals from individuals working on music in Africa within various disciplines and from a range of perspectives.

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. 

The deadline for the submission of poster proposals is Friday 1 December 2023 midnight UTC/23.59 UTC on 01/12/2023.

The Congress is open to anyone with an interest in the field, regardless of IAML membership status. Proposals can be submitted in any of IAML's official languages: English, French, or German. Submissions will be evaluated by the members of the IAML Forum of Sections.  

After successful submission a confirmation message should appear on the screen and you should also receive a confirmation email message.

Applicants will be notified of the results of the selection process by Friday 12 January 2024.

The preliminary programme will be published in February 2024.

Any questions about the Call for Posters should be directed to the IAML Programme Officer, Anna Pensaert (

Please note that all poster presenters must be registered as a delegate to participate in the Congress.
