Organizing Committee



As an essential part of ASIS&T, the Asia-Pacific Regional Conference provides a platform to advance the information sciences and related applications of information technology, and support to information professionals and organizations within the Asia Pacific area. ASIS&T Asia-Pacific Regional Conference 2020 aims to promote the multidisciplinary and ever-evolving area of information behavior and human-computer interaction. There are various kinds of users’ contextualized interactions with information, including information behavior, information practice, information seeking, information experience and so on. Human-computer interaction (HCI) refers to a multidisciplinary field of study focusing on the design and deployment of computer technology as well as the interaction between humans (the users) and computers. Various information behaviors are experienced underlying the user interactions, which can be generalized as useful patterns to optimize the information consumption. The research of the relevant topics would be a key foundation for connecting users and designers.

The conference intends to provide a platform for a broad and open community to engaged with the dynamism of this field. It will provide an arena for researchers to discuss the way people engage with information in a myriad of contexts. The challenge work concerning contextualized information activities of human will be presented through papers, discussions and so on, and scholars from information science, library science, communication studies, information management, education, management science, psychology, sociology, information systems, computer science, and other disciplines contributing to the research field are warmly welcomed.

Topics relevant to the conference include, but are not limited to the followings:

  • Situational Information Behavior
  • User Experience and Usability
  • Information Seeking, Needs and Use
  • Search Tasks and Evaluation, Web Search
  • Collaborative Information Seeking, Human Collaboration and Cooperation
  • Human-Aware Planning and Behavior Prediction
  • Information Ethics, Computing Ethics
  • Human Computer / Robot Interactions & Interfaces
  • Dialogue System and Question Answering
  • Deep Learning for Information Representation
  • Recommendation Systems
  • Reasoning in Semantic System
  • Opinion Extraction and Trend Spotting
  • Simulating Humans
  • Explainable AI
  • Multi-instance/Multi-label/Multi-view learning
  • Community Informatics, Online Communities, Marginalized  Communities
  • Social Informatics, Social Computing, Socio-technical Design


Papers accepted by the conference will be invited to publish an extension of conference paper in the following journals:

  • Data and Information Management
  • Information Processing & Management
  • The Electronic Library
  • Information Technology & Management

To be continued….

The journal Data and Information Management (DIM) will sponsor for five awards, three for full papers and two for posters. To be specific, there will be one best paper and two nominations for full paper, and one best poster and one nomination for poster.

Camera-ready due: new dates TBA



1.Papers: Papers should discuss, analyze, and critique theories and concepts, or report original, unpublished research; all papers must be substantiated by experimentation, simulation, theoretical development, analysis or application in practice. Submissions will be judged on such criteria as quality of content, significance for theory, relevance for practice, method, design, originality, and quality of presentation.
Length: The length for a paper, including references, is expected to be 6-10 pages, single-spaced; Submissions should be formatted according to the AM18 Proposal Template.
Peer Review: Submissions will be referred in a double-blind review process and should be anonymized.

2.Posters & demonstrations: Posters & demonstrations permit presentation of late-breaking results in an informal, interactive manner. Demonstrations showcase innovative digital libraries technology and applications, allowing you to share your work directly with your colleagues in a high-visibility setting. Proposals for posters or demonstrations should consist of a title, extended abstract, and contact information for the authors.
Length: The length for a poster could be one or two pages, single-spaced.
Peer Review: Submissions will be referred in a double-blind review process and should be anonymized.

3.Panels: Proposals for panels are invited on topics that explore emerging cutting-edge research and design, analyses of emerging trends, opinions on controversial issues, analyses of tools and techniques, or contrasting viewpoints from experts in complementary areas of research. Panels are not a substitute for a set of contributed papers; they must have a cohesive theme and promote lively discussions. Proposals should include an overview of the issues to be discussed and must also list panelists who have agreed to participate, indicating the qualifications and contributions of each.
Length: The maximum length for a panel proposal, including references, is 2 pages, single-spaced; Submissions should be formatted according to the AM18 Proposal Template.
