- Early Career Colloquium Submission Closed -
New for 2022, the we plan to offer three distinct Early Career Colloquia, one for each of our iSchools regions (Asia Pacific, Europe, North America).
The purpose of the iConference 2022 Early Career Colloquia (ECC) is to provide a high-quality mentorship and networking opportunity for early career researchers who work in an iSchool, a similar department, or want to work in an iSchool (e.g., post-doctoral fellows, assistant professors). During the colloquia, early career scholars will share their research plans and aspirations with accomplished mentors that have expertise in various interdisciplinary areas represented within the iSchool community, as well as extensive experience in grant writing, promotion and/or tenure review, the peer-review process, teaching, and professional service. Early career scholars will engage in discourse with these mentors and their peers to improve their understanding of having a successful career in an iSchool.
The Early Career Colloquia is open to scholars within five years of completing their doctoral degree. Early career scholars will be chosen through a competitive application process.
ECC applications can now be submitted to our ConfTool submission system.
Our Early Career Colloquia aim to support early career scholars in:
Each regional colloqiua is projected to be a half-day event, with multiple small group discussions. In these colloquia, we will focus on collaborative inquiry and scholarly discourse with peers and a panel of experienced faculty serving as mentors.
Main activities include:
Prior to the session, a few preparatory activities are required to enable us to use the time within the session as best as possible. More information will be forthcoming once selected.
The Early Career Colloquia at iConference 2022 are open to scholars within five years since completing their Ph.D. at the time of application submission. Scholars with involvement in iSchool-related research are encouraged to apply.
Each application should contain the following within one PDF document in the following order, and be submitted through the ConfTool submission system by Oct. 18, 2021.
Application deadline: Oct. 18, 2021
Decisions announced: Mid Nov., 2021
Participants in the Early Career Colloquia will be selected based on their application; perceived relevance and potential contribution to research in the information field, and their anticipated contribution to the colloquia goals. The applications will be reviewed by the chairs and a jury of reviewers. Emphasis will be placed on the formation of groups of participants whose research careers are at a stage that can best benefit from the colloquia and who reflect individual excellence and motivation while at the same time contributing to the colloquia objectives and the aggregate diversity of the cohort.
Accepted applicants must register for the iConference before the conclusion of the Early Bird Registration period. Failure to register in a timely fashion may result in your slot being given to someone else.
Questions about the Early Career Colloquia should be directed to the Chairs listed above.
