Call For Papers

Information and Knowledge: global, social and free?

The 12th International Symposium on Information Science and the 17th Annual Conference of IuKInitiative Science will be held under the overall title Information and Knowledge: global, social and free?

For wide parts of the developed world the internet can be seen as ubiquitous. More powerful technological infrastructures, a growing range of services and tools that alleviate the creation and publication of knowledge, and a new so-called net generation have brought about a change leading to a participative web as the new pre-eminent medium. Aspects of the internationalization and multilingualism of knowledge processes, questions of social and technical adaptability, and connectivity and participation in information access and use are becoming more and more important, first and foremost for professionals and organizations but also for end users and for civil society in general. The conference will serve as a platform and forum for the discussion of such issues.

The ISI 2011 conference is a joint event of the German Higher Education Association for Information Science (HI) ( and the IuK (IuK-I) ( ISI 2011 will be held at the University of Hildesheim ( under the management of Prof. Dr. Christa Womser-Hacker (

HI, being a science and education organization, is primarily interested in science-based and education-related contributions in all areas of research, whereas the IuK- Initiative mainly encourages contributions with respect to the promotion and development of domain-specific information and to the transfer of knowledge. Contributors should specify for which part of the conference their paper is intended.
