The iConference Student Symposium will be an opportunity for undergraduate and master’s students to present their research in a friendly setting of peers and invited senior researchers. Students will receive feedback on their work and they will have a chance to network with other conference participants and faculty members. Participants must apply and be accepted in order to take part.
New for 2022, we are planning to offer three distinct Student Symposium that correspond to the three iSchools regions, namely Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America.
