Will you help us inform others that we are just 6 weeks away from the deadline for submitting papers to our InSITE 2013 conferences in Porto, Portugal?  The conferences take place the first week on July.


Will you forward this announcement to email lists to which you belong?  Here is a link to our Call for Participation: . The main website for the conferences is http://InSITE.NU .


The conferences’ keynote speakers include David Harris, designer of things that inform, and Prof. T. Grandon Gill, prolific author and investigator.  Attendees will be able, without charge, to attend sessions of the collocated  Complexity, Cybernetics,  Informing Science, and Engineering Conference put on by IIIS.


In addition to the collocated CCISE conference, the InSITE conferences include the following four collocated conferences:


InSITE: Inform -- solicits papers in any area that explores issues in effectively and efficiently informing clients through IT (information technology).


InSITE: TeachIT --  focuses on research topics related to teaching IT, including curricular issues, capstone courses, pedagogy, and emerging topics in IT.


InSITE: TeLE --  focuses on research topics related to using IT to teach. For example, these topics include e-Learning, m-Learning, making classroom teaching more effective, and distance learning.


InSITE: =Connect= consists of study in various locations on the transmission of information across time and across space. Connect focuses on the interrelationship between context (historical forces and culture) and information and knowledge transfer.


Beginning this year, the Informing Science Institute is benefiting from ICARUS-ISI  special software designed for us to encourage online collaborative paper creation, submission, review, and revision, created by Dr. Raafat Saade.
