iConference 2017 takes place March 22-25, 2017, in Wuhan, China. This is our twelfth annual gathering of scholars, researchers and professionals who share an interest in the critical information issues of contemporary information society. The theme of this first-ever Asia-based iConference is “Effect • Expand • Evolve: Global Collaboration Across the Information Community.”
iConference 2017 is jointly hosted by the Wuhan University School of Information Management and Korea’s Sungkyunkwan University Library & Information Science and Data Science Department. The 3,500-year-old city of Wuhan represents a combination of ancient culture and modern living, and conference participants are assured a memorable and rewarding experience.
As always, the iConference will include 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 and Early Career Colloquium.
New this year are special conference programs focused on iSchool Best Practices, and also on iSchools and Industry Partnership. In addition, there will be a special track for papers originating in China.
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. Affiliation with a member iSchool is not required—all information scholars, researchers, and practitioners are encouraged to make submissions.
