We invite poster proposals with an information behaviour focus. We also invite submissions for close research areas such as information or data literacy, user experience or interactive information retrieval. Posters provide an opportunity for an informal presentation to conference attendees. Presenting a poster is also a good way to discuss and receive feedback on a work in progress that has not been fully developed into a paper.

Poster presentations at ISIC 2022 will be competitive and if your proposal is accepted, your poster will be displayed in a poster session during the conference. At least one author for each accepted poster must register for and attend the conference since you will be expected to present your poster at the time set aside for poster presentations. A list of the poster titles and authors will be included in the conference program; however, poster proposals are not published in Information Research. Authors have the option to have their poster proposals and final posters published on the edoc repository of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

If your work is accepted for presentation at the conference, at least one co-author will need to register during the Early Bird Registration period and present the work at the ISIC 2022.The organizers reserve the right to withhold publication if these conditions are not met.


Poster submissions: Monday 31 January 2022
Notification: 15 March 2022

Preparing your poster proposal

The format for a poster proposal should follow the general guidelines for full and short papers. Please use the ISIC 2022 poster template as a guideline (will be available in November 2022). Please, limit your proposal for the poster to two pages. The poster proposal should be submitted as a pdf.

Your poster proposal must include the following:

  • Short title
  • Abstract: a short description of your poster (max.200 words)
  • Problem statement / research question & sub-questions
  • Significance and relevance of the topic (explain why the topic is significant)
  • Content: a description of the expected content of the poster
  • Recommendations (if applicable)
  • Conclusion

Authors whose native language is not English are encouraged to have their manuscripts read by a native English-speaking colleague, or professionally edited, before submission.

All proposals should be submitted to the ISIC 2022 submission system Conftool. Final decisions on acceptance in the conference programme will be made by the ISIC 2022 Poster Co-Chairs.

Preparing the poster

The poster board is 4ft wide (1470 mm) x 3ft high (1170 mm), which will fit a landscape A0 poster or an A1-sized poster in either orientation. Posters cannot be printed onsite. The conference organisers will provide appropriate boards and pins to display your poster.

Publishing a poster

If authors wish to publish both their poster proposal and final poster on the edoc repository, they must, by 15 May, submit both files as one pdf and sign an author’s agreement. They will be provided with a permanent URL to their posters to be added for display, for example in the form of a QR code. Authors will receive feedback from at least two reviewers. If reviewers suggest revisions, we encourage authors to include them before publication on the repository.
