Dear Colleagues

Please consider submitting a paper at
long or short paper,
student paper.
doctoral presentation,

*13th International Symposium of Information Science (ISI) in Potsdam (Germany)**
*Submission deadline for papers: 11th of November 2012

In 2013 the biennial central conference of the German Higher Education Association for Information Science  (HI) is to be held by the Information Sciences Department of University of Applied Sciences Potsdam (FH) in collaboration with the American Society of Information Science and Technology  (ASIS&T).

Taking place under the slogan: “Information Sciences between Virtual Infrastructure and Material Lifeworlds”, the symposium will run from the 19th to the 22nd of March 2013 and seek to explore the bridging between traditional computer science topics and new approaches from interface design, activity theory and cognitive science.

Keynote presentations from the likes of /Diane Sonnenwald,/ President of the symposium’s US-American association partner, /Alfio M. Gliozzo/ from the IBM Watson Research Center and well-known technological futurologist /Alan N. Shapiro/ will introduce the key topics.

The conference programme will comprise more than 10 topics blocks for which long and short papers, panel discussion, posters and student/doctoral thesis presentations can be submitted up until the 29th of October 2012 via the symposium website at

The latest research findings from the various fields of the information sciences in Germany and internationally will feature and highlight the progression the information sciences have undergone over the last two years, while an anonymous approval process conducted by proven national and international specialists guarantees a symposium of outstanding quality. English-language papers are welcome, and the conference languages are German and English.

The highlight of the symposium has often been the awarding of the Gerhard Lustig Prize, named after one of the founders of information science in Germany, for the best student thesis on information science from 2011– 2012. The selected papers will receive their accolades at a special evening event.

To coincide with ISI2013, various information science events will take place at FH Potsdam immediately prior to and following the symposium: the annual conference of the German chapter of the International Society for Knowledge Organisation (ISKO), FH Potsdam’s yearly I-Science Day organised in collaboration with the German Initiative for Network Information (DINI e.V.) and “frei<tag>”, the BarCamp from library sciences e-journal LIBREAS.
