Call for papers: i3 conference

There is a call for proposals for the 2015 i3 conference which will take place 23-25 June 2015 in Aberdeen, Scotland. It "brings together academic and practitioner researchers interested in exploring the quality and effectiveness of the interaction between people and information and how this interaction can bring about change." The deadline for abstracts is 19 January 2015. Topics include:
- How much do we know about the impact of information behaviours and capabilities on the quality and effectiveness of learning, knowledge building and sharing, decision-making and problem solving, creativity, democracy?
- How do information behaviours and literacies contribute to the economic or social value of information assets or the intellectual capital of an organisation?
- How do/can organisations and communities harness their information assets to meet challenges, solve problems, survive and thrive?
- Is there a connection between information and inspiration?
- How well do our models and pedagogies for information literacy relate to real-world information contexts in workplace, community, education or home environments?
- Are new information environments changing the way people seek and use information?
- What are the methodological challenges of addressing such issues?
