dc.description Proceedings of 20th Annual Information Studies Conference held on the 18th-20th September 2019 at the University of Zululand, South Africa. en_US
dc.description.abstract The purpose of the conference is to explore and share current research results and experiences of data, information and knowledge in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). The conference is divided into twenty three sessions that focus on the highlighted themes in the programme including: 157 papers consisting of 34 full papers (FP), 123 research in progress (RIP) papers, 10 posters, and one panel session. The conference is expecting 120 participants, largely postgraduate students and faculty/academics, from countries such as: Botswana, Kenya, Lesotho, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Swaziland, Uganda, USA and Zimbabwe. In addition, 20 institutions, largely universities from Africa and particularly South Africa, are taking part in the 2019 conference. The conference theme, “Data, information and knowledge for development in Africa”, is unique because of the importance of digitization in our daily life and the value of e-things such e-learning, e-scholarship, e-science, e-resources, e-data, elibraries and e-resources among others, and resonates well with the 4IR paradigm. It is also unique because of the magnitude of the event that has attracted some of the prominent information, knowledge and library and information science scholars from Africa, and the USA. For example, the conference in our midst has attracted four Keynote speakers and eight Guest Speakers from Africa and USA; consists of nine plenary sessions and 14 parallel sessions; 81 participants from 20 universities/ Institutions and 11 countries. en_US
