ISIC 2018 Call for Proposals

The planning committee invites submissions of full papers, short papers, workshops, and panels to ISIC 2018: The Information Behaviour Conference held at Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland, 9-11 October 2018.

ISIC conferences have a reputation for being an arena for discussing challenging work concerning people’s contextualised interactions with information of various kinds. Keynote lecturers are Professor Lisa M. Given, Swinburne University of Technology; Professor Paul Dourish, University of California, Irvine; and Dr. Sabina Cisek & Dr. Monika Krakowska, Jagiellonian University.

ISIC is an English language, multidisciplinary conference: researchers from information science, information studies, library studies, communication studies, information management, education, management science, and other disciplines contribute to the research field. A common thread is the focus on contextualised information activities, expressed in different framings such as information behaviour, information practice, information seeking, information experience and others. The ISIC conference is particularly interested in analytical rather than descriptive investigations.
