The submissions will be reviewed by a selection committee of the Classification 
and Indexing Section Standing Committee. The selection will be based on the 
abstracts and rated on how well they fit the programme theme. Authors will be 
contacted by February 15, 2008.

For successful applicants the deadline for submission of full papers is April 
15, 2008 to allow time for review of papers and preparation of translations. 
The papers must be original submissions, not published elsewhere, and should be 
no longer than 15 pages, double-spaced. Papers should be in one of the IFLA 
languages with a version in English to allow for translation in other IFLA 
Presentations at the conference will be limited to approx. 20 minutes at the 
Section's open session and will be a summary of the original paper and may use 
PowerPoint. We strongly recommend that the presentation slides are in English 
because simultaneous interpretation is not guaranteed.

attending the Québec conference will be the responsibility of the author(s) / 
presenter(s) of accepted papers. For information on the IFLA Classification and 
Indexing Section, please see http://www.ifla.org/VII/s29/index.htm.
