Call For Papers

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.

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 be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. We would particularly welcome papers which address two or more of the following conference themes:

• 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 impact;
• the value of information and knowledge as enablers of resilience and change in organisations and communities.

By looking at these issues i3 seeks to influence the development of research towards a fuller understanding of the role of information in a complex, fast-moving information society.

Submissions are invited for:
• Full papers (40 minutes duration: 35 minutes, 5 minutes for questions);
• Short papers (15 minutes duration: questions at end of session); and
• Round table discussions (60-80 minutes duration).

Authors who are accepted to give full papers at i3 will also be invited to submit a full paper for consideration by the editorial board of the Journal of Information Science ( for a special issue in spring 2016.

Contributors should submit abstracts of 1000 words (excluding the list of references) for full papers, and 300-500 words (excluding the list of references) for short papers and round table discussions. These should be submitted electronically by downloading the online submissions form, located on the Call for Papers section of the website ( This should then be emailed (as an attachment) to The conference language will be English.

Submissions will be anonymously reviewed by two members of the 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.

Full details of the requirements can be found in the Call for Papers section of the website. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is 19 January 2015.
