There is a call for papers for the 3rd i3 Conference (Information: Interactions and Impact), which will be held on June 20-23 2011 at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland, UK. Keynote speakers include Ross Todd (School of Communication, Information and Library Studies, Rutgers University), Jette Hyldegard (Royal School of Library and Information Science, Copenhagen) and Eric Meyer (Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford).
"i3 is concerned with the quality and effectiveness of the interaction between people and information and how this interaction can bring about change in individuals, organisations, communities and society." Conference themes include: the quality and effectiveness of user/information interactions (e.g. information literacy); patterns of information behaviour in different contexts; impact of information or information services on people, organisations, communities and society (e.g. social, learning, cultural and economic outcomes of engagement with information); and more effective use of information in decision making.
The deadline for submissions (full papers, short papers, posters, and round tables) is 14th January 2011. Further details on the conference website at http://www.i3conference2011.org.uk
