iConference switches to all-virtual format; submission deadlines extended

28 Sep 2020 23:33 | iSchools News (Administrator)

Originally envisioned as having a hybrid format with virtual and in-person elements, the 2021 iConference is now transitioning to an all-virtual format. The conference’s Renmin University hosts and the iSchools Board have decided this is the best course of action in light of ongoing uncertainty surrounding public health and travel during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. As a result, the entire 2021 program will be held online.

In accord with this transition, all submission deadlines are hereby extended. The full and short research papers deadline has moved to October 19, with other deadlines in the following weeks, as noted below. Visit the iConference 2021 website for more information.

In related news, an announcement of the 2021 virtual rates is expected at the end of October.
