Information Seeking In Context (ISIC)

2-5 September, 2014: Short Papers and Panels

ISIC is now accepting calls for panel proposals. These are expected to address new, exciting, and controversial issues. They should be provocative, informative, and entertaining. Panel proposals should include:
•    Summary of the topics to be covered.
•    Name, affiliation and contact information for the panel chair.
•    Names and affiliations of up to four panellists (in addition to the panel chair) who have made a commitment to participate.
•    Short summary of their position statements.
•    Brief biography of each participant.
For the first time ISIC will also provide a dedicated track for short papers for work in progress.  The purpose of this track is to present late-breaking results, work in progress, and follow-up extensions or evaluations of existing methods. Short papers will be peer-reviewed in a one-stage process by the program committee. Submissions for the short paper track should be 3 pages (at most), excluding references, and 4 pages (at most), in total. They will be orally presented at the conference  with each presenter being allocated 15 minutes, 10 – 12 minutes to present their paper and a couple of minutes to answer any questions.

Important Dates
The deadline for submission is March 17, 2014

Author Guidelines and Submission
Submit your paper through the ISIC2014 paper submission site

Conference Location
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. We are delighted that in 2014 it will be hosted by Leeds University Business School. The Business School is internationally renowned for the quality of its teaching, its research and its facilities. The City of Leeds is a modern vibrant city which has excellent transportation links but is also provides access to the beautiful countryside and heritage of Yorkshire.

Conference Organsation
The 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.
