Subject: Announcement of keynote speakers – 4th Information: Interactions and Impact (ił), 25-28 June 2013
***Apologies for Cross-posting***
Keynote speakers announced for the 4th ił Conference –
June 25-28, 2013 at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland, UK.
Keynote speakers in 2013 will include Dr. Annemaree Lloyd (School of Information Studies, Charles Sturt University), Prof. Jane McKenzie (Director of the KM Forum, Henley Business School, University of Reading) and Dr. Adam Rutherford (Editor of Nature, science writer and broadcaster for the BBC and Channel 4).
ił is concerned with 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 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); and
• more effective use of information in decision making.
Further information will be available soon on the conference website at http://www.i3conference.org.uk. If you would like to register your interest and receive further alerts, please email the conference team at [log in to unmask]
