New this year, the iConference will present a number of sessions focused on processes and techniques employed by successful iSchools worldwide. The program will consist of special presentations exploring curriculum, teaching, student experience, research, administrative management and more.
All iSchool member-institutions are invited to submit proposals and case studies to be considered for inclusion in this special program. Ideally, each submission would focus narrowly on a single best-practice topic. There is no limit to the number of submissions a school can make.
Accepted submissions will be presented at iConference 2017, and also posted to the iSchools website.
Length: 2,500 words maximum, including an abstract of no more than 150 words
Format: .doc .docx or .rtf
Deadline: Sept. 16, 2016
Notification: Mid-November, 2016
Submitters agree that if accepted, at least one author will attend the iConference and participate in one of the special sessions.
