The Information: Interactions and Impact (i3) will be held at the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland, from 25th to 28th June 2007. There is a call for papers: abstracts should be submitted by 22nd January 2007.
"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. The conference will look beyond the issues of use and accessibility of technology to questions about the way interaction with the information and knowledge content of today’s systems and services can make a difference to people’s lives. The aim is to bring together academic and practitioner researchers with an interest in: 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).
