Tutorial: Navigating Through the Panoply of ...
Navigating Through the Panoply of Provenance Metadata Standards
Saturday, 31 October
1 - 5 pm EDT
Provenance and provenance metadata are used for documenting the chain of custody and verifying the authenticity of both physical and digital objects. Provenance is integral to many fields of information science including digital preservation, data curation, and research data management, where the explicit recording of data dependencies helps foster reproducibility and data re-use. Library and information science (LIS) practitioners who wish to track the provenance of digital objects in their collections have many metadata schemas to choose from. PROV is a metadata model supported by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) for enabling provenance on the Web. PREMIS is a model supported by the Library of Congress which is designed for recording provenance in the setting of digital preservation. PROV-ONE provides extensions to PROV for supporting prospective provenance for scientific workflows. The goal of this tutorial is help LIS practitioners choose an appropriate provenance model for their purposes and to explore key considerations which distinguish the various metadata schemas. The tutorial consists of presentations covering each of the three models along with written exercises. Additionally, the participants will engage in a group project to model a complex real-world example and ultimately attempt to cross-walk their solution to another provenance model.

Tutorial: Public Engagement for Information ...
Public Engagement for Information Researchers
Friday, 30 October
4 - 8 pm EDT
What is your responsibility to society as a researcher? What are your goals with regard to research impact and public engagement? How do you leverage and expand the skills in your research toolkit to achieve those goals and fulfill your responsibilities in the area of public engagement? This tutorial will first lead participants through clarifying one’s impact/engagement goals, conducting a stakeholder analysis, and creating a project knowledge translation plan. Following a short break, we will delve into examples of, and skills for, a few specific types of common public engagement activities: media interviews, op-ed writing, public-oriented research summaries/videos/infographics, and policy briefing notes. There will be opportunities to practice some of these skills within the tutorial, as well as resources provided for further individual development. Additional registration fee $50.

Workshop: Best Practices for Grant Proposal...
Best Practices for Grant Proposal Development: NSF, NIH, IMLS, IARPA, Amazon, and Google
Friday, 30 October
1-5 pm EDT
Proposal development is an essential skill for academics of all ranks. During proposal development, researchers can better organize their thoughts for what they want to plan and achieve in a research project. Even if research proposal is not awarded, the exercise of proposal writing is often beneficial to the research process. Today, one’s ability to seek and receive funding from grant agencies is often used as a yardstick for important personnel decisions by academic institutions. However, researchers, especially junior faculty members, who are just starting their careers often have limited experience with the grant development process. The goal of this half-day workshop is to provide practical guides to investigators, enhancing their understanding of the process and their abilities to write a successful external grant proposal. Participants will have the opportunity to learn best practices from senior scholars who have been awarded several external grants from multiple agencies and agreed to present in this workshop.

Conceptual Models in Sociotechnical Systems
Thursday, 22 October & Friday, 23 October
1 - 5 pm EDT
Conceptual models -- the representation of how a system works, as well as the information objects they process and transmit -- are fundamental to the construction, maintenance, and use of digital infrastructures that mutually constitute people and technology (the sociotechnical). Although conceptual models are critical to sociotechnical systems, they are often overlooked or under-described in information science research. This full day workshop will convene practitioners and researchers working towards the critical study of conceptual models in sociotechnical systems. In-progress research papers will be workshopped through presentations and discussion amongst participants, and two experts in the field will deliver keynote lectures. The outcomes of this workshop will include a white paper co-authored by participants, as well as the publication of proceedings in an open-access preprint repository.

Workshop:Ten Lessons for the Age of Disinformation
2 Part Workshop Ten Lessons for the Age of Disinformation will provide pedagogical techniques to teach ASIS&T members how to cope with our current disinformation ecology, which the author calls the “Age of Disinformation.” It provides a multifaceted approach in which each facet reinforces the others. Topics include (1) characteristics of the Age of Disinformation; (2) the varieties of false information; (3) knowledge, opinion, and second-hand knowledge; (4) deception and self-deception; (5) psychological factors for the acceptance and perpetuation of fake news; (6) cognitive authorities, such as the Washington Post or Fox News; (7) intellectual freedom, freedom of expression and social media; (8) information ethics, media ethics, digital ethics and the violation of ethical principles; (9) logical fallacies in disinformation campaigns; and (10) the benefits and limitations of information literacy, media literacy and digital literacy. Each lesson outlines the key ideas for each lesson and provides exercises to confirm the key points. There will be suggested exercises to do before the workshop begins (e.g., identifying fake news sites), discussions in which to engage and online exercises to do as the workshop progresses, such as identifying violations of ethical or logical principles or discussing kinds of cognitive authorities and their influence.

ICT for Development, Empowerment for Growth: How Can the Information Field Contribute?
Saturday, 24 October
8 am - 12 pm EDT
Information and communications technology for development (ICT4D), which is devoted to leveraging ICT for economic, social, and governance development, has attracted wide attention from scholars and practitioners. However, gaps remain to be addressed in terms of bridging the connections between information, technological development and adoption, and people for development. Through this workshop, we will develop research ideas and foster collaboration opportunities across information fields, which will lay the groundwork for a JASIST special issue on ICT4D. The ASIS&T Annual Meeting provides an excellent forum to discuss this crucial area together with the academics and industry peers.

Writing-Up Research as a Thematic Narrative
Friday, 30 October
8 am - 12 pm EDT
There is a shortage of guidance and acumen in information science when it comes to writing-up qualitative research. This workshop will present an effective strategy for reporting such findings. Participants will be taught to write a thematic narrative: a gradually unfolding descriptive account that relates vivid pieces of field data to relevant concepts in the scholarly literature. To that end, attendees will learn to create excerpt-commentary units: rhetorical structures that contain four distinct and purposeful elements. The Workshop will be production-oriented, and attendees should ideally bring a data set ready to write-up. This workshop suits doctoral students with research underway, experienced social scientists who wish to fortify their writing, and those who supervise or edit qualitative research. The instructor, Dr. Jenna Hartel, has won the Library Journal/ALISE Excellence in Teaching Award (2016) and she has taught this method to more than 200 masters and doctoral students at the Faculty of Information, University of Toronto.
