The Annual Meeting of the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) is the premier international conference dedicated to the study of information, people, and technology in contemporary society. Information has been the root cause of significant changes in economic, social, scientific, political, and personal behaviors.
However, such changes are only realised when information is delivered to the right group, at the right place, in the right time, and in the right way. Information is so tightly woven into our professional and personal activities that we can sometimes forget that human choices, which are sometimes embedded in technology, drive how data is produced, stored, shared, preserved, managed, and consumed.
The ASIS&T Annual Meeting #ASIST19 provides numerous opportunities for you to hear the latest research discoveries, learn about technology advances in the field, participate in career development programs, network and have fun with colleagues.
Posters: Poster proposals due: 17 June 2019
