***Apologies for Cross-posting***
Don't miss out on the opportunity to attend i³ 2009 -June 22-25, 2009 at The Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland, UK. The conference program is available online at http://www.i3conference2009.org.uk <http://www.i3conference2009.org.uk/> .
Keynote speakers include Dr. Kendra Albright (School of Library and Information Science, University of South Carolina), Dr. Chun Wei Choo (Faculty of Information, University of Toronto), Dr. Louise Limberg (Swedish School of Library and Information Science (SSLIS), University of Borås) and Dave Snowden (Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Cognitive Edge).
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.
Conference themes include:
*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);
*more effective decision making.
