i³ is concerned with the quality and effectiveness of the interaction between people and information and how this interaction can bring about change in individuals, organisations, communities and society.
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. They 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. The conference themes:
- the quality and effectiveness of user/information interactions (e.g. information literacy);
- patterns of information behaviour in different contexts;
- impact of information or information services on people, organisations, communities and society (e.g. social, learning, cultural and economic outcomes of engagement with information); and
- more effective use of information in decision making.
