Calls for Papers for Satellite Meetings

Every year, a number of IFLA Professional Units (Sections and Special Interest Groups) organise unique Satellite Meetings prior to or just after the IFLA World Library and Information Congress.

These 1-3 day meetings are held either in the host country or in countries in the surrounding region.

Satellite Meetings are organised by different professional groups (Sections, Core Programmes and Special Interest Groups).

Calls are launched between December 2018 and January 2019 and are collected on this page as soon as they become available.
