The Special Interest Group on International Information Issues
(SIG/III), the European (ASIST/EC) and the New England (NEASIST)
chapters of ASIS&T (American Society for Information Science &
Technology) are pleased to announce:

The International Calendar of Information Science Conferences (ICISC)

This centralized, master calendar of relevant conferences being held
around the world serves three primary purposes:

- to help information science researchers and practitioners (and their
colleagues in related disciplines) to discover which conferences are
planned that might fulfill their need to communicate their knowledge and
experience and learn from others; and,

- to help conference organizers avoid time or topic conflicts, or
coordinate with other groups, leading to more interaction and coherence
among professional groups; and,

- to contribute to facilitating interaction among like-minded
professionals working on information problems around the globe.

This calendar is meant as a cooperative venture. Any organization or
conference organizer is cordially invited to submit relevant
conferences, either confirmed or planned, to the ICISC Calendar.
Detailed instructions for registering a conference directly, through a
submission form, or by Email can be found on the Web site. The site is
moderated and the sponsoring organizations reserve the right to discard
entries that would not be deemed appropriate.

The calendar is in English at the moment. We hope that more languages
and/or mirror sites could be added in the future. Announcements can be
passed in any language that can be presented in Latin characters,
provided an English translation of at least the conference place and
title is also included.

In addition to the dynamic and searchable calendar available for viewing
in both block and list style, there is a "Quick Calendar" listing all
the events on a static HTML web page useful for printing, or for those
with slower internet connections. ICISC further offers the option to
subscribe to an RSS feed to keep up to date on the latest additions.

The web site further includes lists of electronic fora, societies,
networks, and rotating conferences in Information science. Suggestions
of relevant entries will be most welcome.

We hope that you will find this calendar useful from an organizational
and/or individual stand point. We encourage you to contribute to the
calendar and offer your suggestions.  Be sure to subscribe to the
RSS/XML feed to stay up to date on new additions to the calendar.

Your colleagues from,
