IST 2023: Information Science Perspectives to Documenting Processes and Practices

The European Chapter (EC) and European Student Chapter (ESC) of the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T), and the CAPTURE project invite to a joint in-person and online conference on Information Science Perspectives to Documenting Processes and Practices.

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 participants.

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.
