*13th International Symposium of Information Science (ISI) in Potsdam**
*Submission deadline for papers: 11th of November 2012

In 2013 the biennial central conference of the _German Higher Education 
Association for Information Science_ (HI) is to be held by the 
Information Sciences Department of University of Applied Sciences 
Potsdam (FH) in collaboration with the _American Society of Information 
Science and Technology_ (ASIS&T).

Taking place under the slogan: "Information Sciences between Virtual 
Infrastructure and Material Lifeworlds", the symposium will run from the 
19th to the 22nd of March 2013 and seek to explore the bridging between 
traditional computer science topics and new approaches from interface 
design, activity theory and cognitive science.

Keynote presentations from the likes of /Diane Sonnenwald,/ President of 
the symposium's US-American association partner, /Alfio M. Gliozzo/ from 
the IBM Watson Research Center and well-known technological futurologist 
/Alan N. Shapiro/ will introduce the key topics.

The conference programme will comprise more than 10 topics blocks for 
which long and short papers, panel discussion, posters and 
student/doctoral thesis presentations can be submitted up until the 29th 
of October 2012 via the symposium website at www.isi2013.de.

The latest research findings from the various fields of the information 
sciences in Germany and internationally will feature and highlight the 
progression the information sciences have undergone over the last two 
years, while an anonymous approval process conducted by proven national 
and international specialists guarantees a symposium of outstanding 
quality. English-language papers are welcome, and the conference 
languages are German and English.

The highlight of the symposium has often been the awarding of the 
Gerhard Lustig Prize, named after one of the founders of information 
science in Germany, for the best student thesis on information science 
from 2011-- 2012. The selected papers will receive their accolades at a 
special evening event.

To coincide with ISI2013, various information science events will take 
place at FH Potsdam immediately prior to and following the symposium: 
the annual conference of the German chapter of the International Society 
for Knowledge Organisation (ISKO), FH Potsdam's yearly I-Science Day 
organised in collaboration with the German Initiative for Network 
Information (DINI e.V.) and "frei<tag>", the BarCamp from library 
sciences e-journal LIBREAS.
