Posters & Papers


There will be a possibility to present projects also on posters. There are 10 slots for this purpose. The space available is of size 220X120 cm2.

The cases must contribute to the topic of the pre-conference: to give concrete examples of libraries in building the information society.

Unfortunately the organizers cannot offer free participation to the poster session producers; they must pay the full participating fee.

If you are interested to present a poster, please contact Ms. Tuula Haavisto
( tuulah@kaapeli.fi , fax +358 – 9 - 6221 466) not later than 1 of September.

The offers must include the following information:
- the name and contact information of the institution and the person in charge of the poster presentation
- the title of the presentation and a short abstract (max. 100 characters), giving the essential information about the content
