The first announcement of
The Sixth International Conference on Conceptions of Library and Information Science:
"Featuring the Future"

CoLIS 6 will take place in Borås, Sweden, August 13-16, in 2007.

CoLIS is a series of international conferences for which the general aim is to provide a broad forum for the exploration and exchange of ideas in the field of library and information science (LIS). To be examined at CoLIS 6 are theoretical and empirical research trends in LIS, together with socio-cultural and technical issues relating to our understanding of the various roles, natures, uses and associated relationships of information, information systems, information processes, and information networks. As in previous conferences in the series, this one, too, promotes an interdisciplinary approach to research.

Focus of the conference
Important areas to be addressed at this conference are the efforts that are being made to increase the impact in, and of, LIS research in the knowledge society. Thus, the focus of the conference will be on the development of the LIS research field, as well as on the influence of LIS research efforts in the society at large.

Conference contributions such as theoretical and methodological discussions are welcomed, to aid in the efforts of forming a foundation of LIS research approaches. Reports of successful examples are also valued submissions, to help gain an understanding of the features that can make LIS research prosper alongside contemporary research fields in the knowledge society.

CoLIS 6 encourages submissions that explore the conference topic from different perspectives in LIS. The overall theme covers areas such as theoretical growth; methodological practices; conceptual frameworks; empirical settings; interdisciplinary relationships; impact on, and of, professions; and other related topics. Submissions from other disciplinary backgrounds (science, technology, humanities, and social sciences) are also welcomed.

Call for papers will follow shortly.
