Fourth keynote speaker announced for the 5th i³ Conference –
June 23-26, 2015 at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland, UK.
i³ is pleased to announce Dr. William Kilbride, Executive Director of the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC), as the fourth keynote speaker for 2015.
Other keynote speakers in 2015 include Professor David Bawden (Department of Library and Information Science, City University London), Professor Olof Sundin (Department for Arts and Cultural Sciences, Lund University, Sweden) and Professor Dorothy Williams (Emeritus Professor of Information Science, Robert Gordon University).
i3 focuses on the quality and effectiveness of the interaction between people and information and how this interaction can bring about change. The conference will look beyond the issues of use and accessibility of technology to questions about the way people interact with the information and knowledge content of today's systems and services, and how this might ultimately affect the impact of that information on individuals, organisations and communities.
Conference themes include:
•the quality and effectiveness of user/information interactions (e.g. information literacies);
•patterns of information behaviour in different contexts (e.g. creativity, ethics, surveillance, ownership, information recycling/reuse);
•the social, cultural and economic impacts of engagement with information, including the assessment of value and impact;
•the value of information and knowledge as enablers of resilience and change in organisations and communities.
Further information will be available soon on the conference website at http://www.rgu.ac.uk/i3conference2015. If you would like to register your interest and receive further alerts, please email the conference team at [log in to unmask]
