      The American Society for Information Science & Technology (ASIST), International

      competition for papers to be submitted for the Annual Conference in Washington,
      DC, 3-8 November 2001.

      The theme of the paper is:
      "Information in a Networked World: the Developing World Perspective."

      The paper topic could be at the country or regional level. Papers could present
      a leading edge, salient and/or current issue, problem, concern, policy, idea or
      practice of information science and technology in the developing world such as,
      but not limited to, the following: the digital divide, privacy and copyright
      issues, electronic theses and dissertations, globalization and cultural
      identity, indigenous peoples, knowledge management, development of electronic
      resources across networks, bringing access to information to distant and/or
      disadvantaged communities, or the language issue.

      There will be four winners. Winners will be selected by a panel of judges, which
      will include Sue Johnson, The World Bank, Margarita Studemeister, US Institute
      of Peace, Dr Hal Borko, Professor Emeritus, UCLA, and Nathalie Leroy, Dag
      Hammarskjöld Library, United Nations. The prize for each winner is a two-year
      individual membership in ASIST. In the case of multiple authors, the principal
      author will be awarded the ASIST membership.

      Paper presentation
      Winning papers will be presented at a Conference Session, moderated by Nathalie
      Leroy, Dag Hammarskjöld Library, United Nations. Discussion leader will be
      Sylvia Piggott, Deputy Division Chief and Deputy Chief Librarian, World Bank-IMF
      Joint Library. If winners cannot attend the Conference, their paper will be read
      on their behalf by an ASIST member.

      Other publishing opportunities
      Submitted papers will be considered for posting on the SIG III web site as
      pre-publications. In addition they will also be considered for inclusion in the
      ASIST Bulletin, based on the decision of Editor-in-Chief, Irene Travis, Ph.D.

      refereeing process.
