Interational Conferences

Library focused 

QQML acts under the umbrella of ISAST a non- profit organization (International Society for the Advancement of Science and Technology) and organizes the Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Libraries International Conference. QQML is dedicated to promoting the theory and practice of QQM in Libraries, Museums, and Archives and aspires to:

To establish an active network of people who are interested in QQM

To promote the theory and practice of QQM

To track the developments and share the research results of QQM

To transfer the knowledge on QQM from scientists to professionals

Library workers from academic and public libraries all over the world meet every year for our conference at a venue in the UK focusing on a specific aspect of UX research and design. It is very different to most conferences as it is highly interactive and always includes practical workshops and a team challenge. As well as helping delegates to embed their learning it is also a great opportunity for networking. Excellent world-class keynotes and plenaries are also a hallmark of the event. Our delegate profile is very international: 55% are from the UK; 25% from Scandinavia; 11% from the Rest of the World and 9% from elsewhere in Europe. From just over 100 delegates at its first conference in Cambridge in 2015, UXLibs now welcomes close to 200 delegates. It has taken place 4 times, most recently in Sheffield in June 2018 where the theme was inclusive UX.

In an era of library de-funding, calls for accountability, fake news, and complex information environments, the evidence is becoming more important. This inclusive conference theme will address encourage evidence-based practitioners and researchers to think about what evidence is, how we collect it, and how we use it in these uncertain times.

Non-library focused

ACM Human Information Interaction and Retrieval (CHIIR)

Online information influences every aspect of our lives: work, leisure and learning. As information systems become more embedded in our day-to-day experiences, it becomes increasingly important to understand how people interact with information and the consequences of those interactions. Access to information is critical to preserving democracy. Beyond designing effective and engaging information retrieval systems and interfaces, understanding how users access and use information is crucial to designing fair and ethical systems.

International Conference on Information and Social Science (ISS)

ACM CHI Conference

The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is the premier international conference of Human-Computer Interaction. CHI  – pronounced ‘kai’ – is a place where researchers and practitioners gather from across the world to discuss the latest in interactive technology. We are a multicultural community from highly diverse backgrounds who together investigate new and creative ways for people to interact.

INTERACT conferences are an important platform for researchers and practitioners in the field of human-computer interaction (HCI) to showcase their work. Over the years, the conferences have attracted researchers from several countries and cultures.
