*Conference at UC Berkeley, June 2-6*

* Invitation and call for papers*

You are invited to attend and propose presentations for the 2019 Summit of
the *International Society for the Study of Information (IS4SI)* in
Berkeley, June 2-6.

The theme of this year’s conference is *Where’s the I in AI and the meaning
in information?* focusing on what AI is, isn’t, could be, and shouldn’t be,
as well as considering how AI is related to mental processes produced by
brains and to different theories regarding the nature of information. IS4SI
is the world’s leading organization focused on explaining the nature of
information in all its many forms, not merely how it is understood by
computer engineers and scientists. Until now IS4SI has mostly been centered
in Europe and Asia. This will be its first conference in the US. We expect
300 researchers, scholars, and executives spanning the many domains of
information science, philosophy, engineering and sociology. You don't need
to make a presentation to attend.

*Keynote speakers include:*

Terrence Deacon                            Jaron Lanier

Anca Dragan                                  Melanie Mitchell

Paul Duguid                                     Paul Saffo

Francis Heylighen                           Paul Verschure
