Call for Submissions: Information: Interactions and Impact (i3)
25 - 28 June 2007, The Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland

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 interaction with the information
and knowledge content of today's systems and services can make a
difference to people's lives.

We 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 currently being considered for publication
elsewhere. Preference will be given to papers which address two or more
of the following 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). 

Criteria for acceptance
Criteria for acceptance will be based on the following elements: 

*	the relevance of the paper/poster to the conference themes; 
*	the extent to which the paper/poster demonstrates awareness of
the current state of knowledge in the field (i.e. in relation to theory
or practice); 
*	the originality and significance of the arguments and results
presented (i.e. based on new findings and addressing a new problem or
focusing on a novel synthesis and in-depth discussion of existing
research, which provides a new perspective); 
*	the appropriateness, validity and robustness of the methodology
chosen displaying awareness of limitations; 
*	the contribution to knowledge and understanding of the issues
surrounding information interactions and impact; 
*	the quality of the written abstract (e.g. organisation and
