UPDATED 28 SEP, 2021: The second and final deadline for iConference 2022 submissions has been extened to Oct. 18, 2021. There is still time to propose an interactive session, submit a research poster, and apply to any of our mentoring sessions specially tailored for doctoral, master’s and undergraduate students, as well as early career faculty. Act now!
iConference 2022 will take place online, Feb. 28 to March 4. This truly global event is collectively hosted by The University of Texas at Austin (USA), University College Dublin (Ireland) and Kyushu University (Japan). The conference theme is Information for a Better World: Shaping the Global Future.
iConference 2022 comes at a unique point in history. As we look forward to building our post-COVID-19 realities, the conference can be a forum for shaping a better world. How can information help us pay closer attention to justice, equity, sustainability, and empowerment of the most vulnerable members of our societies? What should our institutions – government, the private sector, civil society – look like for the betterment of all? How can our workplaces, schools, universities, research labs, libraries, museums, and other institutions and organizations, physical and virtual, be constituted collectively so that we can build a better world?
The following submissions and applications are due Oct. 18:
