transforms people. Submissions by researchers and practitioners are solicited on a
wide range of human-centered approaches to topics.

The submission of original, recent, formally conducted research and projects,
theoretical developments, or innovative practical applications is encouraged.
Accepted papers will be published in the digital conference proceedings.

Contributed posters/short papers
Two types of posters/short papers are encouraged. Contributed research posters
present new and promising work or preliminary results of research projects.

practical implementations or industry innovations. The final version of these short
papers will be published in the digital conference proceedings. During the
conference, presenters are expected to display their work as a poster, incorporating
text and illustrations as appropriate.

Technical sessions and panels
Technical sessions and panels present topics for discussion such as cutting-edge
research and design, analyses of emerging trends, opinions on controversial issues,
reports by practitioners on current information science and technology projects, and
contrasting viewpoints from experts in complementary professional areas. The final
versions of these submissions will be published in the digital conference

management strategies, and new and innovative systems or products, typically for
