The 82nd Annual Meeting
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.
International Incubator Sessions
ASIS&T will celebrate the diversity of cultural perspectives that we each bring to 82ndAnnual Meeting in a new series called International Incubator Sessions. These invited sessions will be facilitated by global thought leaders who will galvanize the ASIS&T community around critical information problems such as sustainability, youth engagement, social media bubbles, global data sharing, ethical AI, and mobilizing ASIS&T chapters. Each session will identify future activities to showcase how Information Science and Technology can be leveraged to address critical 21st century challenges. Learn More.
