focuses on the quality and effectiveness of the interaction between people and information and how this interaction can bring about change. The conference will look beyond the issues of use and accessibility of technology to questions about the way people interact with the information and knowledge content of today's systems and services, and how this might ultimately affect the impact of that information on individuals, organisations and communities.


Conference themes include:


  • the quality and effectiveness of user/information interactions (e.g. information literacy);
  • patterns of information behaviour in different contexts;
  • impact of information or information services on people, organisations, communities and society (e.g. social, learning, cultural and economic outcomes of engagement with information);
  • more effective decision making.
