A call for papers and posters has been posted for ISIC 2014: The Information Behavior Conference, to be held in Leeds, UK September 2-5, 2014. Papers and posters are due by February 15, 2014.
The call requests papers that address “issues of common [disciplinary] interest”, focusing on the “relationship between the needs or requirements of the information user, the means for the satisfaction of those needs and the uses to which those means are put in practice by organisations or disciplines.” Topics of potential relevance to social informatics and SIG SI members include theories of the social aspects of information behavior; research on collaborative information practices, communities, and boundaries; the impact of organizational structures and processes on information behavior; and the design of social media and Web 2.0 systems for meeting information needs in organizational and disciplinary contexts.
