Call for Papers and Posters – Invitation
You are invited to participate in the 10th International Congress on Medical Librarianship (ICML), to be held from Monday 31 August – Friday 4 September 2009 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Queensland, Australia. ICML, under the auspices of IFLA, is a global forum held every 4-5 years. The ICML 2009 theme Positioning the Profession will offer delegates an array of research papers, user studies and innovative solutions. Local and international presenters, including those working in health libraries, publishing industries and the information and communication technologies, as well as clinicians and academics will participate at the Congress. A number of continuing education activities will be offered as well as tours of the region. Interest has already been expressed from librarians and information professionals from Malaysia, China, Australia, India, Korea, Japan, Fiji, Egypt, Middle East, Europe, UK, Canada, Central America, Latin America and the United States. It is anticipated that more than 1000 delegates will attend the Congress. Brisbane is the gateway to the rest of Australia, a diverse and wonderful country that we encourage delegates to explore before and after the Congress. Cultural attractions abound: from one of the oldest indigenous cultures in the world, to modern vibrant cities. Brisbane’s compactness provides delegates with a sense of ownership and belonging, while still offering the high end options of a city including one of Australia’s most awarded convention centres. By attending the ICML 2009, we have no doubt that delegates will enjoy an experience of a lifetime in a place like nowhere else on earth.

We look forward to seeing you in Brisbane in 2009.
