ASIS&T Annual Meeting

ASIS&T Annual Meeting

The 85th Annual Meeting of the Association for Information Science and Technology is an international conference dedicated to the study of information, people, and technology in contemporary society. The ASIS&T AM gathers scholars and practitioners from around the globe to share innovations, ideas, research, and insights into the state and future of information and communication in play, work, governance, and society.

ASIS&T AM has an established record for pushing the boundaries of information studies, exploring core concepts and ideas, and creating new technological and conceptual configurations — all situated in interdisciplinary discourses.

This year’s theme: Crisis, Transition, Resilience: Re-Imagining an Information-Resilient Society

Information plays a pivotal role in the good of society. However, we live in an information environment where the lines between true and false, and interest-driven and balanced content are blurred. This, coupled with the constant information overload, places enormous demands on people. With the United Nations having declared the information situation around the Corona pandemic an “infodemic,” and with a flood of misinformation and disinformation, there is a great need to create a resilient information environment for the future. Integrity, quality, and reliability are critical factors in making information an asset rather than a liability to society.

With its unique focus on information, people, and technology, information science is at the forefront of conceptualizing, developing, and implementing solutions for a future information environment that not only reacts to crises but also helps protect society from future information crises. Quality information can play a central role in helping people spring back after crises but also in dealing with or averting them.

The ASIS&T Annual Meeting is a forum to assist in addressing these issues, continuing to push forward the positive contributions of information and technology.

The 2022 ASIS&T Annual Meeting will be a fully in-person meeting without virtual attendance or presentation options. There will be satellite events (poster sessions and workshops) that will be held virtually in early October prior to the Annual Meeting.

*Given the ever-changing status of the Coronavirus pandemic, the schedules of several events are changing. To see their latest updates, please visit each event’s respective website.
