IMCW2018: The “8th International Symposium on Information Management in a Changing World” will take place in Ankara, Turkey from November 1-3, 2018. It is organized by the Department of Information Management of Hacettepe University in Ankara, Turkey.
The main theme of the Symposium is “Post-truth and Information Management”.
The Oxford Dictionary’s selection of the term “Post-truth” as the word of the year in 2016 puts forward the need of questioning the accuracy of the information. Post-truth is defined as “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief” and can be effective in information dissemination processes, information seeking behaviors of individuals, production and use of information. Information management discipline has a very important function in terms of raising awareness of individuals for distinguishing the fake information and facts. For this reason, it is extremely important that the concept of “Post-truth” and its influences be discussed within the framework of the Information Management discipline and by its professionals.
Contributions can be theoretical as well as technical and practical. Informative case studies are also welcome. Contributions are not limited with the main theme: all types of papers, posters and presentations on information management in general are also welcome. The audience will be information professionals, data librarians, data curators, data managers, knowledge managers, researchers, information scientists, data scientists and computer engineers, among others.
We accept extended abstracts (no less than 750 words) for full papers; short communications, Research in Progress reports, and posters on all aspects of Post-truth and also information management. Extended abstracts for student papers and posters are also welcome. Extended abstracts of PhD students to present the interim findings of their ongoing research will also be considered. Please use the template available on the Symposium web site soon to prepare your contributions and send them to us using the Conference Management Software (openconf) by 1 February 2018.
