The *key-note speakers for ISIC2012* are:

Ann Blandford <http://www.ucl.ac.uk/uclic/people/a_blandford> is Professor
of Human-Computer Interaction at UCL. She leads research on how people
interact with and make sense of information, and how technology can better
support people's information needs. She has over 200 international,
peer-reviewed publications, including a Synthesis Lecture on "Interacting
with Information".

Makiko Miwa <http://www.code.ouj.ac.jp/researcher/detail/6> is Professor of
the Center of ICT and Distance Education of the Open University of Japan.
She is a member of the Cognitive Research for Exploratory Search
 project, a collaborative research project to investigate user's behavior
and cognitive processes during various information seeking tasks on the
web, and is interested in how people learn during web search processes in
order to reflect it on the interface design and the evaluation of IR

*ISIC: the Information Behaviour Conference* intends to reflect
character of the area through attracting papers from researchers in all of
these areas. The unifying characteristic, which we see as essential in
developing a programme is the relationship between the needs or
requirements of the information user, the means for the satisfaction of
those needs and the uses to which those means are put in practice
organizations or disciplines. Thus, papers that deal solely with
technological aspects of system design, for example, will not be
appropriate for the conference.
