cfp Moving Toward the Future of Information Behaviour Research and Practice
"We live in an era of change in terms of the technologies, platforms, and tools at our disposal. With these changes, we are also witnessing changes in communication practices, in the meaning and form of information, and in information behaviors. There has been a significant global shift in the ways that information and knowledge is produced, shared, and used. We have seen developments such as the crowdsourcing of knowledge work, the use of new communication channels in information diffusion activities, and the emergence of online environments serving as “third places” and “information grounds”. As we consider the future, there are many ways that we might consider information behavior research including users, application, contexts, and methods to study information behavior and practice."
They "invite poster (500 words or less) and short paper (2000 words or less) contributions that describe completed research and research-in-progress, and that showcase empirical, conceptual, theoretical, and methodological findings or rich practice cases and demonstrations, from researchers, graduate students, and practitioners."
