The Annual IATUL Conference usually takes place in the middle of the year. It is the main event that our association holds, lasting from Monday to Thursday of the week in question, preceded by the Sunday’s Opening Reception for delegates and the first meeting of the IATUL Board of Directors for Board members only. The sequence of sessions is restricted to Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, whereas Wednesday is reserved for the delegates’ joint study tour. As for all other IATUL events the conference is normally held on the grounds of the host institution. IATUL Conferences aim at welcoming 200 or more delegates, and include a social programme for delegates and accompanying persons, as well as commercial exhibits. Also part of the conference are a second Board meeting, and an Annual General Assembly for IATUL members. As with any IATUL event, presentations by commercial library partners are not part of the regular conference programme.
Please contact the IATUL Office if you are interested in hosting an IATUL Annual Conference.
