The Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Libraries International Conference (QQML 2012) aims to bring together researchers and scientists from academia, libraries, archives, museums, from governmental and non government organizations to present new results and identify future research interests.

To fulfil QQML goals and success we are inviting proposals for:

  •       Conference Sessions of 4-6 paper presentations.
  •       Conference Workshops: 2 – 5 hour workshops.
  •       Pecha- Kucha presentations: 5-7 minute presentations.
  •       New researchers’ research results.
  •       Poster presentations.

Poster presentations offer you the opportunity to share research findings or innovative applications. An effective poster should focus on a single message and display an essential content in the title, main headings and graphics.
Please submit (as an email attachment to secretariat[at]isast.org ) a 300 word abstract (in MS Word format) describing your poster. Posters should be no larger than A1 size (841mm × 1189mm) portrait style. The final posters presentations should not exceeding 2,500 words.
