About the Conference

The 2014 ISIC conference will be held at the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom from 2-5 September, 2014.

The conference organising committee have received a number of requests for extensions for the paper submission deadlines.  We have therefore extended the deadline for full papers, short papers and posters until 14 April 2014.

The deadline for submission of papers to the Doctoral workshop remains Monday 21 April 2014.

ISIC: the Information Behaviour Conference focuses 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.

It attracts researchers from information science, information management, psychology, social psychology, sociology, information systems, computer science, and other disciplines, all of which contribute to the field of information behaviour and practice.

ISIC is a biennial conference. The last ISIC conference was held in 2012 in Keio University, Tokyo, Japan and the earlier conference in 2010 in the Universidad de Murcia, Spain.

Information about past conferences can be found at http://informationr.net/isic/.

The 2014 conference is being jointly organised by the University of Leeds Business School, University of Sheffield iSchool and the Department of Information Studies, University of Aberystwyth.

Please note the deadline for papers has been put back to Monday 31 March.  Full details are available on the Call for Papers page.
