Call for Participation

Personal Information Management (PIM) Workshop 2009
held in conjunction with ASIS&T 2009

November 6-7, 2009, Vancouver, British Columbia

Theme: "Personal information intersections: What 
happens when PIM spaces overlap?"

The 5th International Workshop on Personal Information Management (PIM)
will be held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the American Society
for Information Science & Technology.  PIM has been defined as "the
practice and the study of the activities a person performs in order to
acquire or create, store, organize, maintain, retrieve, use and distribute
the information needed to meet life's many goals… and to fulfill liife's
many roles and responsibilities."   PIM is an interdisciplinary field of
study, attracting researchers from such diverse disciplines as information
science, cognitive psychology, computer science, human computer
interaction, and records management.  While technological developments have
provided powerful tools for PIM access and support, there are problems
which these technologies have magnified, including increasing volume of
communication, 24/7 connectivity, and variety of format.

The theme for our workshop is "Personal information intersections."  We
have discovered through previous workshops that the messy area where
different information spaces must interact pose particular challenges for
PIM. The workshop theme embraces such subtopics as group information
management, information spaces that serve multiple users (at home, at work,
at play), information spaces that serve an individual's multiple roles,
task management, privacy and security, organizational strategies and
policies, social and psychological aspects of sharing work space, and
defining and negotiating boundaries.

We invite submissions related to the theme in the following categories:

•	Contributed papers (research or theoretical papers)
•	Short, poster-length  position papers
•	Demos (submission should be a short paper to be reviewed)
Papers should be submitted to: no later than midnight
Pacific Daylight Time on  June 15, 2009.  Submissions will be peer reviewed
and participants will be notified of acceptance by August 7, 2009.

For more information, please consult the PIM Workshop Web site at or contact the organizers directly if you
have questions or want to volunteer.
