|Date:||01 November 2018 to 03 November 2018|
IMCW2018: The “8th International Symposium on Information Management in a Changing World” will take place in Ankara, Turkey from November 1-3, 2018. It is organized by the Department of Information Management of Hacettepe University in Ankara, Turkey.
The main theme of the Symposium is “Post-truth and Information Management”.
The Oxford Dictionary’s selection of the term “Post-truth” as the word of the year in 2016 puts forward the need of questioning the accuracy of the information. Post-truth is defined as “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief” and can be effective in information dissemination processes, information seeking behaviors of individuals, production and use of information. Information management discipline has a very important function in terms of raising awareness of individuals for distinguishing the fake information and facts. For this reason, it is extremely important that the concept of “Post-truth” and its influences be discussed within the framework of the Information Management discipline and by its professionals.
