The 15th International Symposium on Information Science (ISI 2017) will be held at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in March 2017. The organizers invite submissions addressing the overall conference theme of “Everything changes, everything stays the same? - Understanding Information Spaces.”

With the ongoing digitization and virtualization of goods, services and living environments, information science reflects on the potential changes within the information society. While some parts of the community proclaim a revolutionary shift not only in the way we approach information and information systems, but also in the way society constitutes itself, others state that while the applications and interfaces adapt to advances in information technology, the underlying principles for human interactions with information remain the same. At ISI 2017, we invite contributions on the development of innovative information spaces and services, on analyses of human-computer interactions in physical or virtual information spaces and on the role of information science and its research endeavors.
