The IFLA Education & Training Section in collaboration with ekz.bibliotheksservice GmbH has the pleasure to announce the 7th IFLA/ekz LIS Student Paper Award for 2015.

The IFLA/ekz LIS 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 at the upcoming 81st IFLA Congress, 15–21 August, 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa.

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 16 May 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.

The finalists will be announced in late May 2015. The winner will be announced officially during the Press Conference of the Congress in Cape Town.

Extended submission date: 16 May 2015.
