3rd International Symposium on Information Management in a Changing World,
September 19-21, 2012, Ankara, Turkey

E-Science and Information Management
(Call for Papers)


The “3rd International Symposium on Information Management in a Changing World” (or IMCW2012), organized by the Department of Information Management of Hacettepe University, will take place in Ankara, Turkey, from 19-21 September 2012.

“E-Science and Information Management” being the main theme, IMCW2012 aims to bring together both researchers and information professionals to discuss the implications of e-science for information management. “E-Science” is defined as collaborative, networked and data-driven science. Researchers have to get access to large, distributed data sets on, say, global warming or gene sequences, and use a set of tools and technologies for data processing and information visualization. Vast amounts of data need to be collected, curated, stored, managed, and preserved to ensure perpetual access to them over the Internet.

E-Science has implications for both researchers and information professionals such as librarians and data archivists. Both groups need information management and computational skills to deal with massive data sets along with some understanding of intellectual property rights, open access and data literacy issues, among others. Few schools in the US and elsewhere are already offering graduate degrees in “E-Science Librarianship” and one is likely to come across ads of job descriptions for “cloud librarians”.

As organizers, we thought this is an opportune time for IMCW2012 to review the challenges for research libraries and information professionals in the the collaborative, networked, and data intensive e-science environment. Such challenges range from developing data repositories for e-science to using digital tools for data processing and visualization, and from collection development and management to reference services and information literacy. Because IMCW2012 coincides with the 40th anniversary of the foundation of the Department of Information Management of Hacettepe University, to commemorate this event we organized an international ex libris competition with the theme “information management”. The winning art works of ex libris will be exhibited during the symposium.
