Call for Papers: ISIC 2018 – The Information Conference

ISIC 2018 – The Information Conference

Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland, 9-11 October 2018


Call for Papers

ISIC 2018 is the twelfth ISIC conference. The ISIC conferences have a reputation for being an arena for discussing challenging work concerning people’s contextualised interactions with information of various kinds. To see the proceedings of previous ISIC conferences please visit:

ISIC is multidisciplinary in scope: researchers from information science, information studies, library studies, communication studies, information management, education, management science, psychology, social psychology, sociology, STS, information systems, computer science, and other disciplines contribute to the research field. A common thread is the focus on contextualised information activities, expressed in different framings such as ‘information behaviour’, ‘information practice’, ‘information seeking’ ‘information experience’ and others.

ISIC 2018 intends to reflect and engage with the interdisciplinary character of information activities research and seeks to attract papers from all of these areas. ISIC is a conference for research papers exploring information as a rich site of study, going beyond the sole focus on technological aspects and exploring a wide variety of contexts. This legacy is borne out in the publication of the conference proceedings since the first conference in the series over 20 years ago.

The ISIC conference is particularly interested in analytical rather than descriptive investigations.

For more information about the suggested themes of the papers please visit:

The language of the conference will be only English and translators will not be available.
