  1. All meetings of the various steering bodies (with the exception of the business meetings of the Executive and Professional Boards) may be attended by observers, provided the Chairs have no objections.
  2. Normally, papers are not presented in CB, SC and EC meetings.
  3. Papers are listed in the programme in the language in which they will be delivered. If the original language title has not been received, the English title is given. Note too that because of late receipt of papers, the titles listed may be working titles, but they do reflect the content of the paper to be presented.
  4. Papers received by the extended deadline of 15 June (up to code number 113) will be provided in pre-printed booklets to all participants upon registering. Workshop papers, late-arriving papers and translations can be obtained in exchange for coupons or for a cash payment at the Document Distribution Centre. Papers received after 15 August will not be processed during the conference and will only become available after the conference from IFLA Headquarters.
  5. Complete addresses of the speakers can be found in the list of participants.
  6. Most of the meetings will be held in the Bella Centre, with the exception of some workshops which will be held out of the venue.
  7. Division rooms are available throughout the conference week. Groups wishing to reserve a Division room or to find out whether additional rooms are available, may inquire at the IFLA Headquarters Secretariat to reserve rooms for their meetings.
