The Information - Intelligence - Interaction (I3) Journal was founded by members of the research group GDR I3, created by the CNRS in January 1998 (

The journal serves as a forum favoring the dissemination of interdependent and interdisciplinary research involved in information retrieval, database, human-machine communication and artificial intelligence. The recent developments in these fields call for cross-discipline collaborations and perspectives. The I3 journal intends to promote inter-disciplinarity working at the development of common terminology, concepts, typologies, methods and ontologies and aiming at the identification of a unified perspective on research issues.

The journal is disseminated both as a traditional paper publication (published by Cépaduès and as an electronic journal on the web (


Topics of interests to the journal include but are not limited to the following list. The journal calls for papers actually covering and integrating several subfields in a clear effort supporting inter-disciplinarity.
