Update: We are now accepting submissions on our ConfTool submission site.
The 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. The track will have its own organizing team of students. Participants must apply and be accepted in order to take part.
iConference 2021 will take place in Beijing and virtually. At submission, Student Symposium applicants will be asked their preference for meeting in-person or remotely. This input will help us plan and is non-binding.
Application instructions are posted below, and questions about the process can be sent to the chairs listed at the bottom of this page.
All undergraduate and master’s students are invited to submit applications to this session. Affiliation with a member-iSchool is not required—applications from students of any educational institution will be considered. The session will consist of student presentations followed by discussions (15-20 minutes in total for each presentation).
To apply, students should write an application that includes:
Student contributions may be based on undergraduate and master's projects or similar. Students may also join forces and collaborate on a submission.
Submissions may address any current critical information issues, including:
We especially welcome contributions that address the main theme of the conference, Diversity | Divergence | Dialogue.
Applications can now be submitted in writing to our ConfTool submission site. All applications must be in English.
Important notes: Participants must purchase a conference registration in order to take part in the Student Symposium, and should do so during the Early Bird Registration period. Failure to purchase a registration in a timely fashion may result in your spot being given to someone else. Only accepted participants will be admitted; the Student Symposium is not open to observers.
At this time there is no funding for the Student Symposium, and would-be participants should apply with the understanding that they must cover all their costs associated with participating in iConference 2021.
