2016 Annual Meeting of the Association for Information Science and Technology

Copenhagen, Denmark | Oct. 14-18, 2016


ASIS&T’s first European AM conference was a resounding success! Everyone had a wonderful time, and compliments were received on new program offerings and networking events. The food was fabulous and registrants were able to make time to do some touring of the city. The storify contest engaged students, and Dick’s retirement celebration at SIG CON was enjoyed by all. Thanks to all our members for making this year’s conference such a wonderful experience.

ASIS&T 2016 Annual Meeting Copenhagen DenmarkA mentoring service will be available for students and other junior researchers who have not published papers at earlier ASIS&T Annual Meetings. Feedback on complete draft papers will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis to the extent that resources allow. In addition there will be a “revise and re-submit” opportunity offered for submitted papers that reviewers judge to have publication potential but require additional work.
