A great deal of attention has been paid to the rapid growth of the internet, proliferation of information - especially born-digital content, and the development of technologies in response to these trends. Viewing this changing landscape through a lens of the human and social condition would lead to better understanding how human needs drive, are served by and change information and technology. We anticipate an exploration of the human condition from the individual to society as a whole.

ASIS&T 2008 will focus on how people transform information as well as how information transforms people. Submissions by researchers and practitioners are solicited on a wide range of human-centered approaches to topics including but not limited to the following:

Individual identities and how they are transformed by the impact of information technologies
The societal archive – is it disappearing and/or being marginalized?
Societal attentions and how emphasis on information technology either allows or hinders these
Openness, access and privacy issues
Generational, economic, and socio-cultural dimensions of impact of information on people’s lives
Cognitive and emotional aspects of interactions with information
Reshaping the boundary between personal and public information space
The effect of collective information creation on authority and trust
Information by the people for the people
The role of information in connecting people and community building
How well is current technology meeting human needs, and what should future technology research and development involve to better meet our needs?
