People Transforming Information - Information Transforming People
October 24-29, 2008		Hyatt Regency, Columbus, OH

Complete Call:  HTTP://WWW.ASIS.ORG/Conferences/am08/AM08cfp.HTML

ASIS&T 2008 will focus on how people transform information as well as how information transforms people.  Submissions by researchers and practitioners are solicited on a wide range of human-centered approaches to topics. 

Contributed papers
The submission of original, recent, formally conducted research and projects, theoretical developments, or innovative practical applications is encouraged.  Accepted papers will be published in the digital conference proceedings.

Contributed posters/short papers
Two types of posters/short papers are encouraged.  Contributed research posters present new and promising work or preliminary results of research projects.  Contributed “best practices” posters present the results of design projects, practical implementations or industry innovations. The final version of these short papers will be published in the digital conference proceedings.  During the conference, presenters are expected to display their work as a poster, incorporating text and illustrations as appropriate.  

Technical sessions and panels
Technical sessions and panels present topics for discussion such as cutting-edge research and design, analyses of emerging trends, opinions on controversial issues, reports by practitioners on current information science and technology projects, and contrasting viewpoints from experts in complementary professional areas.  The final versions of these submissions will be published in the digital conference proceedings.  

Pre- and Post-conference sessions
Pre- and Post-conference sessions present topics such as theoretical research, management strategies, and new and innovative systems or products, typically for purposes of concept development or continuing education.  Purely promotional programs are excluded.  Formats may include seminars, courses, workshops, and symposia.  Sessions are scheduled for half to a full day and require a registration fee beyond the regular conference fee.
