The ASIS&T International Information Issues Special Interest Group (SIG-III) is pleased to announce that for 2014 we will be able to sponsor another group of deserving information professionals from developing countries for complimentary ASIS&T memberships (the financial burden of which would otherwise be prohibitive).
We are soliciting nominations of candidates for the InfoShare Membership Award. The award will be given to students (master and/or PhD) and professionals.
Below are minutes from the 2012 SIG-III business meeting in Baltimore last month. This was such a great meeting! They are pretty thorough and I think Shimelis did a remarkable job in capturing the spirit and content of the meeting as the recorder. But please let him know if we missed any significant details or misconstrued anything.
This year’s International Reception will be held on Monday, November 9, 2009, at 8pm. At the reception you will be able to meet and congratulate this year’s International Paper Contest winner and mix with colleagues from all over the world.
Yes, I realize I'm very early with this message, but enough has been going on over the past week that I want to share it with you all now.
The most important piece of news is that we have three winners for the International Paper Contest. Please congratulate Muhammad Rafiq, Muhammad Arif, and Saima Kanwal on their winning papers! I have announced them over the SIG-III Blog.
