Call for Participation: iConference 2016

Philadelphia, PA, USA

March 20-23, 2016


iConference 2016 takes place Sunday, March 20 through Wednesday, March 23,
2016, in historic Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. This year’s theme of
“Partnership with Society” examines the dynamic, evolving role of
information science and today’s iSchool movement, and the benefits to
society. The conference includes peer-reviewed papers, posters, workshops
and sessions for interaction and engagement, interspersed with multiple
opportunities for networking. Early career and next generation researchers
can engage in the Doctoral Student Colloquium, Early Career Colloquium and
Undergraduate Student Showcase forums.

The iConference brings together scholars and researchers addressing
critical information issues in contemporary society. The iConference pushes
the boundaries of information studies, explores core concepts and ideas,
and creates new technological and conceptual configurations—all shaping
interdisciplinary discourses. Visit our website for more information,
including sample topics and links to past proceedings:

iConference 2016 is hosted by Drexel University’s College of Computing &
Informatics. Our conference venue, Loews Philadelphia Hotel, is located in
Philadelphia’s bustling center city. The historic 33-story building is
hailed as America’s first skyscraper, and is in easy walking distance of
the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, birthplace of the United States
Constitution. Other nearby attractions include the Rodin Museum and the
Philadelphia Art Museum.

The iConference is presented by the iSchools (www.ischools.org), a
worldwide association of Information Schools dedicated to advancing the
information field, and preparing students to meet the information
challenges of the 21st Century. Affiliation with the iSchools is not
required—all information scholars, researchers, and practitioners are
welcome at the iConference. The Champion Sponsor of iConference 2016 is
Microsoft Research.
