General Submissions


We aim to bring together a diverse gathering of researchers and scholars spanning the many domains of information science, philosophy, and sociology to meet and discuss, to present state of the art demonstrations, and to envisage possible futures.

As a hub for building a network for intellectual cooperation we hope to expand our shared knowledge for promotion of a humane and sustainable infosphere.

The general aims of the summit are:

  • to explore the impact of the sciences of information and machine information processes (e.g. computation and information media) on social processes and meaning-making (e.g. cognition).
  • to explore the foundations of the sciences of information, computation, communication, and cognition.

The Summit is planned as a gathering of workshops, conferences, tracks, poster sessions, and demonstrations connected by commonplenary talks, social events, exhibitions, discussions, etc.


We invite participants to submit proposals for oral or poster presentations. Presentation proposals should be submitted as PDF files that include title, an abstract of no more than 300 words, proposers’ names, titles, affiliations, and primary contact email.

Proposals can be targeted to specific mini-conferences, workshops, or panels, but can also be submitted without any specific topic or session designation.

Presentation proposals should be submitted through your account portal under "My Abstracts". (You need to create an account here first).
