Call for Papers

In 2015, during the 70th General Assembly of the United Nations, the 2030 Agenda was born, signed by the heads of state and government of the 193 UN member states during the UN Summit on Sustainable Development. This Agenda includes the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In the UN 2030 Agenda, access to information was recognized as a goal in Sustainable Development Goal 16:Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels: «Goal 16.10: Ensure people’s access to information and protect fundamental freedoms, in accordance with national legislation and international agreements.»

Since Information Science is a field that studies, manages and organizes means of information dissemination and use, it is essential and irreplaceable in the cause of sustainability, and should contribute to meeting the informational needs of a sustainable society. The lack of quality information can have disastrous effects either by the inability to anticipate problems, to understand them, or to solve them.

The event, which will take place online, via Zoom platform, whose link we will announce soon, intends to provide a space for sharing and disseminating research developed in this thematic area.

Thus, we invite the submission of proposals for papers/communications and posters to the following email addresses:
