Submission Policy

We encourage any individual or organization to submit conferences for inclusion in the International Calendar of Information Science Conferences. Only actual conference dates are to be listed. No calls for papers, deadlines, or reminders will be included on the calendar, although a blog is being developed which will be appropriate for these types of messages. Responsibility for the content of any conference listing lies with the individual or organization who submits it and neither ASIS&T or the chapters or SIG can be held responsible.

The calendar is primarily focused on international events and those relevant to information science. To avoid overcrowding the calendar with too many tangential or US-centric conferences, we reserve the right to restrict postings to reflect a geographically balanced and and topically useful calendar.

Although the calendar is at the moment in English, we welcome announcements in any language that may be presented with Latin characters; in that case please provide at least an English translation of placeCountry, place and title of the conference (e.g., THAILAND, Bangkok: International Asian Conference on Digital Libraries, IACDL).
