Welcome to ASIS&T 2019


Information has been the root cause of significant changes in economic, social, scientific, political, and personal behaviors. However, such changes are only realized 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.

Join a cadre of scholars and professionals from around the globe to share research, innovations, and insights regarding the impact of information science and technology on individuals, groups, organizations, governments and societies throughout the world.
