International Calendar of Information Science Conferences (ICISC)

Jul 29, 2005 by

This is of interest for all librarians and information professionals, not just sci-tech librarians. 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) have all collaborated to create the International Calendar of Information Science Conferences (ICISC).

This is a calendar that wants to display relevant LIS conferences being held around the world. It serves three 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.

Any organization can add its relevant conference or event, confirmed or planned, to the calendar.
