Deadline: Monday 19th January 2015

 Dear Sir/Madam,

Please could I ask you to circulate the below call for papers for the
upcoming i³ Conference 2015 to your members.

Kind regards,


Following the success of the previous Information: Interactions and Impact
(i³) International Conferences, 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013, the fifth i³
conference will take place at Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland,
23-26 June 2015.

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* (*http://jis.sagepub.com) 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 (
http://www.rgu.ac.uk/i3conference2015). This should then be emailed (as an
attachment) to i3submissions at rgu.ac.uk. The conference language will be

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.

section of the website. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is 19 January
