1st Call for Papers: ISI 2015 (14th International Symposium of Information Science), Zadar, Croatia (26.08.2014)

Dear col­lea­gue,
We would like to invite you to con­tri­bute to the 14th International Symposium of Information Science (ISI 2015).

ISI 2015 is a bian­nual gathe­ring of scho­lars, rese­ar­chers and stu­dents from infor­ma­tion sci­ence from Europe and beyond who share a com­mon inte­rest in cri­ti­cal infor­ma­tion issues in con­tem­porary society. The con­fe­rence series ori­gi­na­ted in the German-language infor­ma­tion sci­ence com­mu­nity but has become more and more inter­na­tio­nal in recent years. This time, ISI 2015 will take place in Zadar, Croatia, from May 19 - 21, 2015 and will be co-organized by the Department of Information Sciences at the University of Zadar and the German Academic Association for Information Science (Hochschulverband Informationswissenschaft e. V.), in asso­cia­tion with the Association of Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T). Below and at www.isi2015.eu please find more detailed infor­ma­tion about the conference.
If you have any ques­ti­ons, please do not hesi­tate to con­tact us. We are looking for­ward your contribution.

With kind regards,
Franjo Pehar (head of orga­ni­sa­tion com­mit­tee) & Christian Schloegl (head of pro­gramme committee)


DATE AND LOCATION: May 19 - 21, 2015 at the University of Zadar, Zadar, Croatia


German Academic Association for Information Science (Hochschulverband Informationswissenschaft e. V.) and
Department of Information Sciences at the University of Zadar
in asso­cia­tion with the Association of Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T)

CONFERENCE TOPIC: “Re:inventing Information Science in the Networked Society”

ISI 2015 takes place at a time of ongo­ing chan­ges in today’s net­wor­ked society. Recent Internet deve­lop­ments have made it pos­si­ble to access ever rising amounts of data and effi­ci­ent ana­ly­sis tools empower users to iden­tify pat­terns which extend their human mind. Easy-to-use web ser­vices also allow users to be pro­du­cers of infor­ma­tion, a deve­lop­ment which is sub­su­med under the term social web. Social tag­ging sys­tems, for instance, pro­vide users with the oppor­tu­nity to per­form activi­ties which were pri­ma­rily asso­cia­ted with libra­ri­ans and infor­ma­tion spe­cia­lists before. Furthermore, sci­ence makes exten­sive use of col­la­bo­ra­tion, infor­ma­tion sharing and infor­ma­tion dis­tri­bu­tion which are avail­able through net­work tech­no­lo­gies (big data). Finally, Digital Humanities has emer­ged as a new rese­arch domain in recent years. These chan­ges have a strong effect on both infor­ma­tion sci­ence and prac­tice which are to be dis­cus­sed at ISI 2015.

SUBMISSIONS: Particularly desi­ra­ble are papers that deal with the fol­lo­wing topics, alt­hough con­tri­bu­ti­ons cove­r­ing other sub­jects in the wider field of infor­ma­tion sci­ence and neigh­bou­ring disci­plines are wel­come as well:

1. Information Science - Interdisciplinary Aspects and Cross-disciplinary Fertilization

Information Science: so broad - so small!
Information sci­ence vs. Web science
Digital huma­nities rese­arch across disci­plines and cultures
LIS schools and digi­tal huma­nities syl­labi - con­ver­gence issues in infor­ma­tion sci­ence education

2. Information Science in Today’s Networked Society

Changing face of infor­ma­tion sci­ence professions
Digital Collections and Connections
Changing Users

3. Information Science and “Big Society”

Information sci­ence vs. data science
Semantic data meets big data
Information retrie­val, infor­ma­tion dis­co­very, visua­li­zing and map­ping tools and approaches
Privacy con­cerns - the “vit­reous user”
Danger of “infor­ma­tion mono­po­lies” - the win­ner takes it all?
New requi­red com­pe­ten­cies of infor­ma­tion specialists

4. Changes in Scholarly Communication

New forms of scho­larly publis­hing: blogs, tweets, wikis, crowdsourcing
Use of social media in scho­larly com­mu­ni­ca­tion: social refe­rence manage­ment sys­tems, social net­wor­king cites, etc.
Altmetrics (readership/bookmarks, men­ti­ons, likes, etc.) as alter­na­ti­ves to cita­ti­ons in rese­arch evaluation?

5. Decolonizing descrip­tion: cri­ti­cal approa­ches and innovations

Description in limi­nal spaces: sub­ver­ting sys­tems to libe­rate description
Moving across diverse standards
Archives, libra­ries, muse­ums inte­gra­tion through metadata
Decolonising international/national standards
Social tag­ging and par­ti­ci­pa­tive meta­data prac­tices: alter­na­tive and/or wel­co­med prac­tices and their impact on catalogue/finding aids (aut­ho­rity, trust, authenticity)
Submissions can be made in the fol­lo­wing forms:

(1) Long papers (max. 12 pages)
(2) Short papers (max. 5 pages)
(3) Posters (max. 2 pages)
(4) Panel sug­ges­ti­ons (max. 2 pages, incl. naming of a panel chair, par­ti­ci­pants and a topic plan)
(5) Student presentations
(6) Doctoral the­sis presentations
Besides these sub­mis­sion opti­ons, there is a spe­cial call for the Gerhard Lustig Master Thesis Award.

Contributions must be sub­mit­ted in English and be ori­gi­nal work. Proposed sub­mis­si­ons will be reviewed by at least two mem­bers of the pro­gramme committee.
