The deadline for submitting an application is February 3, 2017. Applicants will be notified in the first half of March, after a double blind peer review process, whether their submission has been accepted for presentation at the conference. The 2017 ALA Annual Poster Sessions will be held June 24 and 25, 2017 in the exhibits hall.

Start the application process now.  You must login to the site using your ALA username and password, or you can create a username and password for the site before you submit your application.
