The 2015 HSLG Annual Conference will be held on 14 & 15 May 2015 at the Sheraton Athlone Hotel.
The theme of this conference will be “Evolution or Extinction”. We would like to invite interested people to submit presentations on this theme for the conference. Presentations may be either 30, 15 or 5 minutes in duration.
Details of potential presentations will need to be submitted no later than 20 March 2015 and accompanied with an abstract of no more than 150 words. Successful applicants will be notified by 03 April. Final presentations must be emailed to the coordinator no later than 30 April.
We are also looking for submissions for a Poster Session at the conference. Posters can either be posters presented at previous conferences or created specifically for HSLG 2015. New posters don’t need to be on the conference theme but must have a Health Librarianship focus. Posters must be submitted no later than 06 March 2015. Posters may be up to size A0. Successful submissions will require a 2 minute presentation on the poster on Thursday 14 May. First prize for the poster competition is 2 days free attendance at HSLG 2016. Second Prize will be a €50 book token. Both winners will also receive a certificate from HSLG honouring their achievement.
Submissions for presentations and posters should be sent to c.rowan2 AT stmichaels.ie.
Submission emails should contain the subject heading HSLG 2015 presentation or HSLG 2015 poster as appropriate. You should also feel free to submit both a presentation and a poster if you wish.
