  • 1.  Information Science Trends 2021 (by ASIS&T EC): Abstract Deadline THIS Friday

    Posted 05-26-2021 02:47

    The last year has seen dramatic changes in the way we approach our research.  As COVID-19 cases rose, research laboratories, and data collection opportunities in-person all closed.  The world went into lockdown.  Our usual work activities were halted or pivoted online.  After a year of change, it is time to reflect on the challenges and the opportunities we have experienced as a result of the pandemic.

    The European Chapter (EC) and European Student Chapter (ESC) of the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) are seeking your contributions for the Information Science Trends (2021):  June 9-11th, 2021, 2-5pm (BST)
