The purpose of the iConference 2020 Early Career Colloquium (ECC) is to provide a high-quality learning and networking opportunity for early career researchers who work in an iSchool, a similar department, or want to work in an iSchool (e.g., Ph.D. students, post-doctoral fellows, assistant professors). Within the colloquium, participants will share their experiences and expectations with iSchool peers and other iConference delegates. Participants will engage in collaborative inquiry and scholarly discourse to improve their possibilities for a future career in an iSchool.
The Early Career Colloquium is open to scholars within 5 years of completing their Ph.D. Early Career Scholars (maximum of 20 participants) will be chosen through a competitive application process for participation.
ECC applications will be submitted to our secure submissions website.
