Call for Papers and Participation

Doctoral Consortium at ICADL 2014
International Workshop on Global Collaboration of Information Schools
WIS 2014

November 5, 2014
Chiang Mai, Thailand

ICADL 2014 will have a one-day program composed of the ICADL 2014 Doctoral Consortium and the WIS 2014 on November 5th, which is the first day of the conference.

About Doctoral Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium is meant to provide doctoral students working on their dissertation research an opportunity to share, receive feedback, develop their research ideas and to explore issues related to academic and research careers in the field.  The consortium will also provide doctoral students the opportunity to build relationships with active researchers and professors working in the field and other PhD students from around the world.

A best doctoral consortium presentation will be awarded by IEEE Technical Committee on Digital Libraries (TCDL).

About WIS 2014

Information school is gaining a global recognition very rapidly. Library and Information Science is a crucial subject area in the community. Computer Science, Business Administration, Health Informatics, and so on are also important areas for information schools. International Workshop on Global Collaboration of Information Schools, WIS2014, will be held on November 5th as part of ICADL2014. WIS 2014 will be composed of two sessions – research forum and roundtable discussion. Research forum is for presentations of research activities and novel educational efforts at information schools. Roundtable discussion is for open discussion and information sharing toward the future of information schools in Asia-Pacific.

WIS2014 solicit research papers and/or activity reports on collaboration of information schools in the global community. All submissions will be reviewed by the WIS 2014 committee for presentation at the research forum. WIS2014 also invite position statements for the roundtable discussion. Positions statements are not mandatory for participation but are important to make the discussion fruitful.

ICADL is a mother community of Consortium of information Schools in Asia-Pacific (CiSAP) which was launched at ICADL 2008 in Bali, Indonesia. A-LIEP and ALIRG are important activities for Library and Information Science (LIS) community in our region. On the other hand, iSchools community is expanding in our region. Thus, there are communities and activities close each other but not working together. The primary purposes of the roundtable are

  • sharing information about collaborative activities among Information LIS Schools in Asia-Pacific
  • discussion on the future directions of Information and LIS.

WIS 2014 is jointly organized with CiSAP (Consortium of information Schools in Asia-Pacific). CiSAP annual meeting will take place right after WIS 2014. All participants of WIS 2014 are welcome to attend the CiSAP annual meeting. Central topics of the annual meeting will be the activities and organization policy for the future.


Three types of submissions are invited:

  1. Doctoral Consortium paper: Doctoral students are invited to submit their research proposal and/or research report which should be at most 10 pages. Submissions from other graduate students who are not a PhD student but intend to continue to a PhD program are also welcome.
  2. Research Forum paper (WIS 2014): Research Forum is a oral presentation session to present research papers and/or activity reports. The topics of research papers can include  but not limited to:
    • Digital Libraries, Archives, Curation and Preservation
    • Information Access, Discovery and Retrieval
    • Metadata and Knowledge Organization
    • LIS Education, Professional practices, and LIS and Society
    • Web, Social networking and Information management
  3. Position Paper/Statement for Roundtable Discussion (WIS 2014): Roundtable discussion is an open discussion session to promote international/regional collaboration among information schools. The Asia-Pacific region has a large diversity in many aspects – language, culture, industrialization and economic development levels, higher education system and social demands to higher education. Sharing ideas and information among the participants from many different regions is crucial for our community. The roundtable session is for non-structured and informal discussion among the participants. Position papers which will not be reviewed will help understand thoughts, ideas and problems for collaboration among information schools.

All submissions to the Doctoral Consortium and Research Forum will be reviewed by the Doctoral Consortium/WIS2014 committee before they are selected for presentation. All accepted papers will be included in the proceedings which will be made available online after WIS 2014 via the CiSAP website (http://www.cisap.asia/). The contributors may choose to publish their papers in peer-reviewed journals but not in the WIS 2014 proceeding, or they may choose to publish an extended abstract of their paper in the final WIS2014 Proceedings.

Previous workshops

CiSAP (Consortium of iSchools - Asia Pacific) http://dis.sci.ntu.edu.sg/cisap/about.htm) was established on 5 December 2008 as a not-for-profit organisation to promote collaboration among iSchools in the Asia Pacific region. As of February 2010, 21 institutions from 10 different countries have joined CiSAP.  Members of the Consortium are academic institutions for higher education interested and involved in education and research in the area of 'information'. Being part of CiSAP and being involved in the consortium's activities provides member institutions an important opportunity for international engagements and for raising the profile of their information school programmes and research. CiSAP is founded as a voluntary organization and does not require a membership fee.

The iSchools (http://www.ischools.org) were founded in the early 2000’s to establish broad recognition of the information field and its importance to society. In this role, they sought to position a group of academic institutions to identify, clarify and speak to the major issues, challenges and driving questions at the nexus of information, technology and society. The defining characteristics of iSchools include:

  • an interest in the relationships among information, technology, and people;
  • a commitment to learning and understanding the role of information in human endeavors;
  • a recognition that expertise in all forms of information is required for progress in science, business, education, and culture; and
  • a belief that this expertise must include understanding of the uses and users of information, as well as information technologies and their applications.
