The UCF Quality Enhancement Plan for Information Fluency is a multi-million dollar, university-wide project that is designed to support and enhance the ability of all UCF community members to acquire, evaluate, and use information in appropriate ways. See http://www.if.ucf.edu for information on IF projects, conferences, grants, and activities.
Philosophy and Information Fluency have hosted two inter- and multi-disciplinary conferences (one in 2007 and one in 2008). The first, “Heresy, Blasphemy, and Freedom of Expression,” centered on issues of freedom of speech and the press and related issues. The second, “Knowledge Rights and Information Sharing in the 21st Century,” was held on January 30-Feb 1, 2008 with our keynote speakers, Seth Shulman, John Barrie, Wade Maki, Catharyn Baird, and Don McCabe.
The 3rd UCF Department of Philosophy and Information Fluency international and multidisciplinary conference will be held at UCF in Orlando in January 2009. Its topic is “Evolution, the Environment, and Responsible Knowledge.” Please return to this page for updated information on the call for papers and the conference web site.
