Conference Logo

The conference logo is composed of several parts:
  • Abbreviations of the name of the conference - “EALC” (Eurasian Academic Libraries Conference) with the date and venue (Astana is the capital of Kazakhstan);
  • Panorama view of Astana is above the abbreviation of the conference name;
  • Symbol of the unity of Europe and Asia, depicted in the form of two oval figures under the Shanyrak on the left side. Shanyrak is a round shape that depicts the ceiling of a yurt, which for Kazakh people is a symbol of a home, the unity of the earthly and the sublime, an heirloom.
The colors of the logo are from the Nazarbayev University corporate palette. The burgundy color symbolizes dignity, strength, and solidarity; green is for hope, friendship, education, honor, and aspiration.
