University of Zadar, Croatia, 20-23 September, 2016
The field of human information behaviour and practice is multidisciplinary in scope: researchers from information science, information management, management science, psychology, social psychology, sociology, information systems, computer science, and other disciplines contributing to this field of investigation.
ISIC: the Information Behaviour Conference intends to reflect this interdisciplinary character through attracting papers from researchers in all of these areas. The unifying characteristic, which we see as essential in developing a programme is 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 organizations or disciplines. Thus, papers that deal solely with technological aspects of system design, for example, will not be appropriate for the conference.
Themes of the conference include the following:
For the 2016 Conference we shall be particularly interested in papers in any areas that address the connection between information research and information behaviour and practices. Also, analytical, rather than descriptive investigations, will be sought, with strong connections to previous work and to theoretical or conceptual frameworks.
Full and Short Papers and Posters
* In the case of minor revisions, the authors will be informed about the final acceptance already in early May if they submit the revised text promptly. Conversely, if major revisions are required, the authors may need more time, even until 31 May. Even in this case, we may check the revised texts so that the final acceptance can be announced within a few days. Each case is processed individually and the final acceptance will be announced as soon as possible.
The maximum length of a full paper is 5 500 words (excluding the list of references). Full paper submissions must describe original and unpublished work.The full paper should be prepared by following the author guidelines (http://isic2016.com/?page_id=277)
ISIC 2016 also solicits short papers. Similar to full papers, short paper submissions must describe original and unpublished work. Please note that a short paper is not a shortened long paper. Instead short papers should have a point that can be made in a few pages. Characteristics of short papers include:
The maximum length of a short paper is 2 000 words (excluding the list of references). The short paper should be prepared by following the author guidelines (http://isic2016.com/?page_id=277)
Posters provide an opportunity for an informal presentation featuring “give and take” with conference attendees. Presenting a poster is also a good way in which to discuss and receive feedback on a work in progress that has not been fully developed into a paper. The topic of a poster presentation is not limited. However, the topic should be relevant to the themes of the conference specified above.
Poster presentations at ISIC2016 will be competitive and if your proposal is accepted, your poster will be displayed in a poster session during the conference. You will be expected to present your poster at that time. At least one author for each accepted poster must register for and attend the conference.
The format for the Poster proposal should follow the guidelines:
