In light of ongoing global health developments related to COVID19, the leadership at the University of Borås has advised the iConference organizers against continuing with an in-person international gathering and are instead calling for a virtual format.
The conference organizers are now in the process of transforming iConference 2020 into an interactive, all-virtual format. The organizers look forward to working with the iSchools community to bring this new conference plan to fruition.
A letter summarizing the situation has been sent to all registered participants. Detailed instruction on how the virtual conference will be conducted will be posted to the conference website as soon as it's available.
The organizers ask that everyone hold off on their questions for a few days while details are sorted out.
