Call for Submissions: Information: Interactions and Impact (i3)
25 – 28 June 2007, The Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland
http://www.i3conference.org.uk



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.


We invite the submission of high quality papers that report original research or critically discuss underlying methodological issues associated with the main themes of the conference. Papers may reflect ongoing or completed research studies and should not have been previously published or currently being considered for publication elsewhere. Preference will be given to papers which address two or more of the following conference themes:


          o the quality and effectiveness of user/information interactions (e.g. information literacy);
          o patterns of information behaviour in different contexts;
          o impact of information or information services on people, organisations, communities and society (e.g. social, learning, cultural and economic outcomes of engagement with information).




Criteria for acceptance


Criteria for acceptance will be based on the following elements:

          o the relevance of the paper/poster to the conference themes;
          o the extent to which the paper/poster demonstrates awareness of the current state of knowledge in the field (i.e. in relation to theory or practice);
          o the originality and significance of the arguments and results presented (i.e. based on new findings and addressing a new problem or focusing on a novel synthesis and in-depth discussion of existing research, which provides a new perspective);
          o the appropriateness, validity and robustness of the methodology chosen displaying awareness of limitations;
          o the contribution to knowledge and understanding of the issues surrounding information interactions and impact;
          o the quality of the written abstract (e.g. organisation and clarity).

Submissions will be anonymously reviewed by two members of an international programme committee specialising in one or more of the conference research streams. Notification of acceptance will be emailed to authors and will also include the comments of the reviewers. A list of titles of accepted papers and posters will be published on the i3 website.



Types of submissions


Submissions are invited for full papers, short papers, posters and round table discussions. The conference language will be English.



Full papers

Full papers will be allocated 40 minutes (35 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for questions). Presenters of full papers should submit an extended abstract of 1000 words. Authors who are accepted to give full papers at i3 are also invited to submit a full paper for publication in a special issue for Libri (http://www.librijournal.org).



Short papers

Short papers will be allocated 10 minutes for presentation with opportunities for questions at the end of each session. Presenters of short papers should submit an abstract of 300-500 words.



Posters

Poster presenters will be allocated space for a poster, which should be no bigger than A1 size (594 x 841 mm). The poster should include the title, the author(s) name and affiliation(s) and a description of the research findings. The size of lettering should be legible from a distance and the inclusion of excessive amounts of information should be avoided. Printed copies detailing the main elements of the research may be prepared for distribution. Posters will be displayed throughout the conference (although a specific poster presentation session will be allocated). Presenters of posters should submit an abstract of 300-500 words.



Round Table Discussion

Proposals are welcome from persons interested in chairing a round table discussion (of between 60 and 80 minutes) centred on the major conference themes. Chairpersons should submit an abstract of 300-500 words, explaining the background and goals of their discussion.



How to submit a paper

Contributors should submit abstracts electronically using the online submissions form, located at: http://www.i3conference.org.uk/call/abstractsubmission.htm .Papers will not be accepted via email or by post.



Important Deadlines:
 

          o All abstracts should be submitted by 22nd January 2007.
          o Notification of acceptance will be emailed in early March.
          o The final copy of full papers for Libri should be received by 1st August 2007. Acceptance of a paper for the conference does not necessarily mean acceptance of the full paper for publication.


Further details about the conference are available from http://www.i3conference.org.uk


Dr Konstantina Martzoukou, on behalf of the i3 Organising Committee.
