   - *Registration: *at the ASIS&T web

We *invite researchers, practitioners and students* to submit abstracts for
talks (15 minutes presentation + discussion time). Students can also submit
proposals for posters (10 minute presentation of their poster). We welcome
proposals both from ASIS&T members, and from non-members. The revised
abstracts will be published on Zenodo
an online repository for research outputs. Each conference day will consist
of a keynote, online talks with discussions, opportunities for networking,
and a student poster session.

*The programme:*
The purpose of the hybrid format is to enable as wide participation as
possible, across geographical boundaries and for researchers and
practitioners alike, in the information science community. Each of the
conference days will consist of an onsite half-day, also broadcasted via
Zoom, and a Zoom only half-day. A physical space that can be used to join
the Zoom sessions will be provided to onsite participants in Uppsala.
Presentations will be recorded and made available for the registered

For those attending on Zoom, there will be networking opportunities between
sessions. Those attending in Uppsala will be offered additional social
events in the evening of June 20th and 21st.

IST 2023 focuses on *processes and practices in information science* and
accepts submissions within information science/studies (broadly construed)
covering research (completed or in progress), practical projects or
examples, and conceptual work. "Processes and practices" is a theme open to
your interpretation, but this gives some ideas about what we have in mind:

   - documenting processes and practices, such as
      - research,
      - work, such as:
         - analysis,
         - coding or programming (e.g. Knowledge Organisation System (KOS)),
         - procedures of care, e.g. care of children, elderly care, medical
         care, therapeutics, care of participants and customers
      - leisure, e. g. sef-tracking behaviors, personal memory making
      - …
   - for different purposes
      - data reuse
      - modeling and prognostics
      - information management
      - enabling cooperative and collaborative work, e.g. aligning care
      - personal information management (PIM)
      - digital library development
      - data/research impact evaluations
      - information seeking and use
      - …
   - from different perspectives
      - Information behaviour and practices (e.g. practices of documenting
      practices and processes; implications to IBP etc.)
      - Data, information and knowledge management, including actions taken
      to meet Open Science objectives and FAIR data management
      - (Information) literacies (e.g. competences of documenting and
      understanding documentation etc.)
      - …
   - ethical aspects of documenting practices and processes
      - ethical considerations in the reuse of data
      - ethical data governance
      - …

We interpret *Information Science* broadly to include all kinds of
information experience and information behaviour, information retrieval,
data science, information literacy, information organisation, and ways of
knowing. If you are not sure whether your idea fits in with our theme do
please email the conference co-chairs (see emails below).

Submission requirements

For both presentations and posters, we request an informative, structured
abstract (400-750 words including references in APA format, and written in
English). You will find our template at https://tinyurl.com/IST23cfp. You
must submit via *Easychair*: <https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ist23>.
All abstracts will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. All
presenters must be registered for the conference (see below. *Submissions
are due on:* *31st March 2023.*

If your submissions is accepted, we require you to upload your abstract

Information Science Trends - ASIS&T European Chapter Series
Opportunities for all researchers and practitioners

You may submit proposals for presentations (presentation of 15 minutes + 5
minutes for questions). Please submit your abstract and choose the
submission type "presentation" in the submission form. The conference will
be a hybrid event, using Zoom. Multimodal presentations, as well as
traditional presentations, are welcome, as long as they fit in the time
limit. Please indicate whether you will be attending on site or on Zoom
Opportunities for students

Students may either submit presentation proposals (see above) and/or
posters.* All posters will be entered in a Best Poster competition*.
Posters will be judged by the conference committee based on clarity of
communication and innovative presentation.

Poster can be presented online or in-person. Students are defined as
BA/BSc, MA/MSc, or PhD students within Information Science (including
related areas such as Data Science and Information Management). Please
submit an informative, structured abstract and choose the submission type
"poster" in the submission form. The conference will be a hybrid event,
using Zoom. Please indicate whether you will be attending on site or on
Zoom only. Presenters of the posters at the conference may use a pdf, a
video (playable from a publicly-accessible platform such as Youtube) or a
very short slide show.   You need to verify your status and name your
supervisors/course leader.


You may attend the conference in-person or online. In-person sessions will
be broadcasted for online delegates. All online sessions will be ONLINE
only, however, with an opportunity to participate from the conference site.
For those attending in-person there will be additional networking events.

Participation is not restricted to those presenting. If you do not want to
present your work, you may want to join and listen to the talks.

*The **Information Science Trends (IST) **conference series*

The event is part of the series on *Information Science Trends (IST)**.* The
events focus on current research topics, including invited speakers from
research and industry. Our first event in Hamburg (April, 2019) focused on
the topic Search Engines and Information Retrieval
Our second, online, event focused on Health Information Behaviour
<https://www.asist.org/2020/04/14/67651/> (June, 2020), our third on
Science Research During COVID-19 and Post-Pandemic Opportunitie*s (June
2021), and our fourth on Untold Stories
2022); The latter 3 conferences were each awarded the ASIS&T Chapter Event
of the Year
Our events provide an opportunity to network and share ideas and interests
from the different fields of information science and related disciplines.

*The CAPTURE* *project*

CApturing Paradata for documenTing data creation and Use for the REsearch
of the future (CAPTURE). We might have enough data about data, but not a
good enough understanding of how the data came about. CAPTURE investigates
what information about the creation and use of research data (that is,
paradata) is needed and how to capture enough of that information to make
the data reusable in the future. The wickedness of the problem lies in the
practical impossibility of documenting and keeping everything, and the
difficulty to determine how to capture just enough.

The empirical focus of CAPTURE is archaeological and cultural heritage
data, which stands out by its extreme heterogeneity and rapid accumulation
due to the scale of ongoing development-led archaeological fieldwork.
Within and beyond this specific context, CAPTURE develops an in-depth
understanding of how paradata is being created and used today and elicits
methods for capturing paradata. CAPTURE tests new methods in field trials
and synthesises the findings in a reference model to inform the capturing
of paradata. Enabling data-intensive research using heterogeneous research
data stemming from diverse origins.

The project is directed by Professor Isto Huvila. More information about
the project at CAPTURE

This project has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC)
under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme
grant agreement No 818210.
