On Wednesday the 21st of September, I will be attending the Information Behaviour Conference ISIC 2016 held this year in Zadar, Croatia. This is because I will have the honour to present my 1st short paper co-written with my supervisors Prof. Hazel Hall and Dr. Colin F. Smith. The title of the short paper is: ‘Tacit knowledge sharing: the determination of a methodological approach to exploring the intangible.’ I will present it on Thursday the 22nd in the afternoon session ‘Context of information sharing’ hosted by Maija-Leena Huotari.
Three of my colleagues from the CSI will also be there: Frances Ryan, who will present her paper on Thursday morning, John Mowbray and Lyndsey Jenkins who will both present their research on an academic poster.
Prior to the conference, on Tuesday the 20th, my colleagues and I will be attending the pre-conference Ph.D. workshop with other fellow Ph.D. students. This workshop will give us the opportunity to discuss various challenges and issues we’re struggling with at the present stage of our research.
This is the 2nd time this year that I have the privilege to present my research at an international academic conference, after the IDIMC conference in January. I’m thankful to the School of Computing from Edinburgh Napier University for giving me the opportunity to participate in such important event, as it provides the best environment to discuss my research with other academics.
Last but not least, the fact that this conference happens in Croatia, a country that I love for almost 20 years by now, is a nice wink from Life. No doubt I will enjoy each minute of it.
