Students of Library and Information Science (LIS) are invited to take part in the upcoming 81st IFLA Congress, 15–21 August, 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa <http://conference.ifla.org/> with a paper presentation. The Calls for Papers <http://conference.ifla.org/ifla81/calls-for-papers> have already started, but more will follow soon.
The IFLA/ekz LIS Student Paper Award <http://www.ifla.org/set/student-paper-award> will honor students of Library and Information Science whose abstract submissions have been accepted by any IFLA Section or IFLA Unit to be presented.
Students must first follow one of the deadlines of any IFLA section Call for Papers. Once the paper is accepted for presentation by any IFLA section at the World Congress (not a satellite conference), the student may then send their full paper to SET to apply for the award – but not later than 15 April 2015.
Three finalists will be recognized for their outstanding achievements. From these three finalists, the winner will be chosen and receive the IFLA Congress registration fee plus grant for economy airfare and economical lodging to attend the IFLA Congress 2015, in total up to €1000, plus the recommendation for publication of the paper in the IFLA Journal. Second and third place finalists will receive a certificate.
