The 15th International Symposium on Information Science (ISI 2017) will be
held at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in March 2017. The organizers invite
submissions addressing the overall conference theme of “Everything changes,
everything stays the same? - Understanding Information Spaces.”

With the ongoing digitization and virtualization of goods, services and
living environments, information science reflects on the potential changes
within the information society. While some parts of the community proclaim
a revolutionary shift not only in the way we approach information and
information systems, but also in the way society constitutes itself, others
state that while the applications and interfaces adapt to advances in
information technology, the underlying principles for human interactions
with information remain the same. At ISI 2017, we invite contributions on
the development of innovative information spaces and services, on analyses
of human-computer interactions in physical or virtual information spaces
and on the role of information science and its research endeavors.

Papers and other submissions on the following topics, but also those which
cover any subject in the broader field of information science including
neighboring disciplines such as archival science, computer science,
economics, law, library science, linguistics, political science and
administration, psychology or social science are invited:

Designing information spaces:

* Digital collections - big data, small data
* Domain-specific information systems
* Information infrastructures
* Information organization and access
* Multimedia
* Social web, collaborative media
* User interfaces
* Virtual research environments
* Visualization

Analyzing information spaces:

* Information behavior
* Information literacy
* Metrics & altmetrics
* Quality management und evaluation
* User & usability studies

Impact of information spaces on research and society:

* Digital humanities
* E-Learning, E-Science
* E-Society, E-Culture, E-Commerce
* Globalization of information processes
* Information professions and professionalization
* Internationalization of information and knowledge
* Open access, open education, open innovation, open source

The conference language is English and English submissions are expected.
The conference tool EasyChair will be used for all submission types unless
otherwise specified. A style sheet and guidelines for submissions will be
provided. Students and doctoral students are encouraged to present their
research in special sessions. The following types of contributions may be

1. Long papers (10-12 pages)
