Dear Colleagues
We invite submissions of full papers, short papers, workshops, and panels to ISIC 2018: The Information Behaviour Conference held at Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland, 9-11 October 2018.
2nd Call for Papers
ISIC 2018 is the twelfth ISIC conference. The ISIC conferences have a reputation for being an arena for discussing challenging work concerning people’s contextualised interactions with information of various kinds. 
Keynote lectures by
Professor Lisa M. Given, Swinburne University of Technology
Professor Paul Dourish, University of California, Irvine
Dr. Sabina Cisek & Dr. Monika Krakowska, Jagiellonian University
ISIC is multidisciplinary in scope: researchers from information science, information studies, library studies, communication studies, information management, education, management science, psychology, social psychology, sociology, STS, information systems, computer science, and other disciplines contribute to the research field. A common thread is the focus on contextualised information activities, expressed in different framings such as ‘information behaviour’, ‘information practice’, ‘information seeking’ ‘information experience’ and others.
The ISIC conference is particularly interested in analytical rather than descriptive investigations.
