This year’s Iranian Researchers Conference in Europe (IRCE 2006) will take place in different parts of the Europe mainly in the UK. According to the website, the conference aims to “gather Iranian researchers from different scientific backgrounds worldwide to exchange knowledge and expertise, to network and to forge links between international experts from scientific institutions inside and outside Europe.”
I also have a presentation in the IT and computing section of the conference which will be delivered at the University of Salford.
The abstract of my paper, ‘Web Literacy: An Indispensable Component of Information Competency’, is available. This presentation explores the concept of Web Literacy and explains why we need to consider it separately from broader concepts such as Information Literacy.
