- We request that you disclose use/non-use of generative AI tools/services in the authoring of submissions. Please read this section in the AM24 Proposal Template Instructions. prior to authoring your submission so you can plan appropriately.
- In considering whether and/or how to use generative AI tools, we encourage authors to educate themselves on the nature, affordances, and limitations of generative AI technologies prior to their use. These technologies may produce content containing incorrect statements and fictional citations, and exhibit bias due to the content that they are trained on. A generative AI tool should not be treated as or listed as an author. Thus, it is the responsibility of authors to assess the validity and relevance of any AI output that is submitted.
- There are privacy and intellectual property concerns with the use of generative AI tools. For example, if sensitive information is uploaded to a generative AI tool, there is potential for the AI tool to reproduce this information in its output. Further, there is the potential for unattributed intellectual contributions to be included in AI generated content. Thus, we encourage authors to refrain from uploading sensitive information to a generative AI tool and to take responsibility for citing prior intellectual contributions in their work.
- Scholarly research is often a collaborative endeavor. We encourage conversations about authorship within research teams when preparing to submit a paper, including who should and should not be listed as author, and the order of authorship. . All authors are expected to make a clear and substantial contribution to the paper. Authors of accepted papers will be asked to provide a statement of author attribution using the CrediT Taxonomy.
- In some cases, positionality statements can provide valuable context for understanding and evaluating research contributions. Authors are invited to provide positionality statements, as appropriate to their work and research context. Authors are not required to include such statements, nor to disclose aspects of their identity
- All presenters must attend the Annual Meeting and register by the Early Bird Deadline (August 5).

A NOTE ABOUT THE CONFERENCE THEME: Putting People First: Responsibility, Reciprocity and Care in Information Research and Practice
We are keen to receive contributions of any type that align with the main conference theme. These presentations should have the potential to stimulate discussion at the conference and produce transferable lessons to others.
Further, we welcome submissions as a special category of long papers, short papers, or posters that describe library and information science research has been translated into a practice situation or policy outcome, and the resulting effects. Such papers should contain: a description of the underlying research, a description of mechanisms or processes by which the research was translated into concrete outcomes, a description of who was affected and in what way by these outcomes, and a reflection of the process of translating research into practice or policy. Authors may be describing a translation of their own research or of LIS research conducted by others with an emphasis on societal uptake and impact. Submissions of this type should use the keyword ResearchIntoPractice at submission time.
Submissions are welcome which are related to, but not limited to, the following topics:
