FEIS 2018

The International Symposium on the Future of Education in Information Science (FEIS 2018) is intended to stimulate discussion about educational pathways for the information specialists of the future. Today’s and future knowledge society profoundly changes the way in which information is produced, organized and accessed, and calls for a reshaping of traditional studies in library, archives and documentation. (see the Call for Papers for more details).

The EINFOSE project

The aim of the EINFOSE project is to overcome differences that exist in the area of entry requirements and learning outcomes for Master courses offered by European universities in the field of Information Science. The possibility of defining common entry requirements could mitigate or even eliminate the differences in enrollment procedures at different European universities and could contribute to a higher enrollment of students with different educational background at the graduate level programs in Information Science.

Keynote lecturers

FEIS 2018 features four distinguished, internationally renowned, invited lecturers:

  • David Bawden, Professor of Information Science in the Department of Library and Information Science at City University London
  • Leif Kajberg, School of Library and Information Science, Denmark
  • Gary Marchionini, Dean and Cary C. Boshamer Professor at the School of Information and Library Science, University of North Carolina, USA
  • Anna Maria Tammaro, Professor at the International Master in Digital Library Learning (DILL), University of Parma, Italy


FEIS 2018 will host a panel discussing the right balance among human, technology, and information dimensions in creating a new curriculum in Information Science.


A few scholarships for young students are available, to help cover the costs of attending FEIS 2018 (see the scholarships page for complete details).
