*+++++++ Call for I-Stories **+++++++ **

** ** ** ** ** **** *SIG History & Foundations of Information Science



Information and communication phenomena are at the heart of our daily 
lives. They are how we know things and yet our understanding of these 
concepts and underlying phenomena are at best slippery. Just when we 
think we’ve pinned or penned them down nicely with a few well chosen 
phrases, we discover that those phrases are inadequate, that others 
disagree with our definitions or that many other conceptions abound. Not 
to bore you with the many varied conceptions of information, the aim of 
this call for I-Stories is to bring forth, through everyday experience, 
the many different things information can mean to different people or to 
the same person in different circumstances in a lively and entertaining 

The SIG History & Foundations of Information Science solicits stories on 
how information and its understanding affect our daily lives, be it in 
work situations, in our private lives, in our research. The stories of 
information and around information should showcase how effective or 
ineffective the concept may be, how it can mean different things to 
different people, how that may have got you into misunderstandings//and 
how that has got you thinking about information in general. The stories 
may concern an event, something that happened to you or to someone you 
know, a talk you heard or involve well known scholars and how they have 
grappled with this open-ended question.

We encourage scholars, practitioners, and especially students to send us 
a text of at most,  1000 words which can be illustrated with drawings.

A jury chosen from SIG HFIS members will choose 5 stories that shed 
startling, informative and unexpected insights into our understanding of 
the phenomenon we call information and of the field we call information 

Stories by students will receive particular attention and if selected, 
their authors will receive a 1 year free membership to ASIST and to 
HFIS. Membership benefits are varied and can be consulted at 

Stories written by practitioners or faculty members if selected will 
receive a gift card of $30 as well as 1 year free membership to SIG HFIS.

Please send your stories to fidelia.ibekwe-sanjuan at univ-amu.fr 
<mailto:fidelia.ibekwe-sanjuan at univ-amu.fr>by ^15th june.

The jury will render the result of its deliberation by 30^th June.
