The conference aims at creating a forum for further discussion for an Integrated Information Field incorporating a series of issues and/or related organizations that manage information in their everyday operations. Therefore, the call for papers was addressed to scholars and/ or professionals of the fields of Library and Archives Science (including digital libraries and electronic archives), Museum and Gallery Studies, Information Science, Documentation, Information Management, Records Management, Knowledge Management, Data management and Copyright experts, the latter with an emphasis on Electronic Publications. Furthermore, papers focused on issues of Cultural Heritage Management and Conservation Management were also welcomed along with papers regarding the Management of Nonprofit Organizations such as libraries, archives and museums. One of the primary objectives of IC-ININFO was the investigation of information-based managerial change in organizations. Driven by the fast-paced advances in the Information field, this change is characterized in terms of its impact on organizations that manage information in their everyday operations. Grouping emerging technologies in the Information field together in a close examination of practices, problems and trends, IC-ININFO and its emphases on integration and management presented the state of the art in the field. This Annual Event is addressed jointly to academics and practitioners and provides a forum for a number of perspectives, based on either theoretical analyses or empirical case studies that foster the dialogue and the exchange of ideas. The Conference offered a number of sessions under its patronage, providing a concise overview of the most current issues and hands-on experience in information-related fields.
