Submission Instructions & Policies

To submit a Paper / Poster / Panel / Alternative Event / Workshop / Doctoral Colloquium proposal, please upload a Word document through the ConfTool Site. For detailed Doctoral Colloquium submission instructions, please see the separate instructions. Submissions (except for workshops and doctoral colloquium proposals which do not require the use of the template) should be formatted according to the AM23 Proposal Template Instructions. Submissions must comply with the page limits noted in the instructions. Please scroll down and follow the naming conventions noted at the bottom of this page.


  • No prerecorded or virtual presentations (except for a few workshops held prior to the meeting), will be permitted.
  • All presenters listed in the submission will need to register for the meeting by the Early Bird Deadline in August in order to present their work. If a person has contributed to the submission, but will not be attending the meeting, do not check the box indicating the person is a presenter. In order to be included in the conference Program and Proceedings, at least one author must register and attend the meeting in person to present.
  • In order to ensure a diverse program and allow more presenters an opportunity to present, a single presenter cannot be listed on more than five (5) total submissions.
  • Only one poster may be presented per person. If more than one poster is accepted for a single presenter, a coauthor must be available to present the poster. At least one (1) presenter must be present at the poster to present.
  • If your submission is endorsed by a special interest group (SIG), verification of this endorsement will be required.


A Note About the Conference Theme: Research into Practice

We are keen to receive contributions of any type that align with the main conference theme of research being applied into practice. These papers should have the potential to stimulate discussion at the conference and produce transferable lessons to other researchers on how to create impact from research.

Contributions will be treated as a special category of long papers, short papers, or posters but will undergo the same rigorous review process. These papers should describe how library and information science research has been translated into a practice situation or policy outcome, and the resulting effects. Such papers should contain: a description of the underlying research, a description of mechanisms or processes by which the research was translated into concrete outcomes, a description of who was affected and in what way by these outcomes, and a reflection of the process of translating research into practice or policy. Authors may be describing a translation of their own research, or of L&IS research conducted by others; what we are interested in is the translation of research for societal uptake and impact.

Submissions of this type should use the keyword Research into Practice at submission time.
