MLA '09: Call for Posters featuring New Technology Trends and Late-Breaking Research

The 2009 National Program Committee (NPC) invites submission of abstracts
for a special late-breaking poster section at MLA '09, May 15-20, 2009, at
the Hawaiian Convention Center in Honolulu, HI. Submissions sought include
new technology trends which have recently emerged, innovative library
programs, and notable projects or research which have taken place (or been
completed) since the original October poster submission deadline.

Priority will be given to original submissions. Previously submitted
abstracts should only be resubmitted if they include new information or
results. As with previous poster submissions, authors are encouraged to
submit a structured abstract as described at:

http://www.research.mlanet.org/structured_abstract.html. Posters will be
available for viewing during MLA '09. Posters and related handouts will be
posted to MLANET prior to the meeting.

Twenty-five posters will be selected. Posters will be presented during the
regularly scheduled poster sessions. The primary author will be notified of
acceptance by email sent the week of March 23, 2008. The lead or presenting
author must be identified at the time of submission and is expected to pay
for that day's registration. Presenters will be required to staff their
posters at one of the following assigned times:

Sunday, May 17, 2009 2:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.

Monday, May 18, 2009 1:30 p.m.-2:30 p.m.

Tuesday May 19, 2009 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.

See the original Call for Participation

space. For more information about posters, see the frequently asked
