1st-2nd June
Dundee (Apex Hotel)

Full Details

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Conference

Date: June 23-26, 2015

Venue: Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland, UK.
Keynote speakers in 2015 include Prof. Dorothy Williams, Emeritus Professor of Information Science at Robert Gordon University, Prof. David Bawden (Department of Library and Information Science, City University London) and Prof. Olof Sundin (Department for Arts and Cultural Sciences, Lund University, Sweden).

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.

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

Further information is available on the conference website at http://www.rgu.ac.uk/i3conference2015.  If you would like to register your interest and receive further alerts, please email the conference team at i3information@rgu.ac.uk.

The Information: Interactions and Impact (i3) Conference is also pleased to make a special “two for the price of one” day rate offer for the school library community. There are a  number of relevant sessions each day, such as Information literacy, Information interactions and young people (full papers and round table) and Information interactions in learning.
