ECIL 2021 will be an online event

We are staying committed to organize the 7th European Conference on Information Literacy (ECIL 2021) this year as previously planned (20-23 September 2021)! However, looking at how the COVID pandemic and vaccination prognosis are developing, after careful deliberation the organizing team has concluded that ECIL 2021 will be held as an online event. We are very sorry that we will not be able to meet in the lovely town of Bamberg for ECIL this year, but it remains a possible destination for one of the future ECIL conferences.

The process of making these decisions caused a delay in our current plans and deadlines. We wish to inform you that all of your contributions are still safely archived in the conference management system and your previous user accounts remain active. The results of review will be visible again after the new cycle of abstract submissions is received and reviewed. (Contact us at if you are experiencing any technical issues.)

We invite those authors who want to submit a new abstract to do so until the 25th of January. The conference management system is now open and ready for your submissions. More information about the online presentation format of each contribution type and technical requirements will be published at a later date.

If you wish to withdraw your submission please let us know as soon as possible by withdrawing your contribution from the system at:

Even though only virtually, we very much look forward to meeting you all in 2021!

Kind regards,

ECIL 2021 Board
