Information Science with Impact: Research in and for the Community


This year’s conference theme provides an opportunity for information science researchers – including academics and practitioner researchers – to discuss the impact of their research on industry, on government, on local/national/global community groups, on individuals, on information systems, on libraries/museums/galleries, and on other practice contexts. The theme highlights the introduction of a new conference focus on Applied Research, which recognizes that basic research in information science is also inspired by, and/or connected to, information practice contexts. Submissions are encouraged that present theoretical or applied research with results that demonstrate one or more of the following themes:
Impact on Individuals
Impact on Society
Impact on Organizations
Impact on Systems & Technology
Impact on Information Contexts
