We invite post-conference half-day workshop 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. We are especially interested in workshops on innovative research methods for information behaviour studies, theories and methodological issues and workshops relevant to information literacy and practice theory. Workshops on the transfer of information behaviour research findings to practice are also welcome. This does not exclude other workshop topics.

If a workshop is accepted for presentation at the conference, at least one co-presenter will need to register during the Early Bird Registration period. The organisers reserve the right to cancel workshops if these conditions are not met.

Workshop proposals are not published in the official conference proceedings. If authors wish, proposals may be published in the Humboldt edoc-repository (see poster call for more information). A shortened version of the workshop proposals will be available in the conference program and during registration.

The format for a workshop proposal should follow the general guidelines for full and short papers. Please use the ISIC 2022 workshop template as a guideline. The workshop proposal should not exceed 3 pages (abstract and references are excluded from this) and should be submitted as a pdf.


Your Workshop proposal must include the following information:

  • Title
  • Names, affiliations, and e-mail addresses of the workshop organisers
  • Provide an abstract (max. 200 words) that may be used for the conference program
  • Key issues addressed by the workshop (maximum 1 page)
  • Workshop structure
  • Statements on:
    • Relevance of the workshop to ISIC 2022 themes
    • Significance of the workshop
    • Number of attendees that can be accommodated
    • Requirements for participation (e.g., prior knowledge, skills)
    • Special needs: venue layout, equipment
    • Confirmation that the workshop can be covered in half-a-day

All proposals should be submitted to the ISIC 2022 submission system Conftool. The ISIC 2022 Workshops Co-Chairs will make final decisions on acceptance in the conference programme.
