Fresh on the heels of our successful conference in Washington DC, the organizers of next year’s iConference in Borås, Sweden have released the 2020 Call for Participation. Faculty and students in the information field are encouraged to begin making submission plans. iConference 2020 will open for submission in late June, and a series of staggered deadlines will occur starting in September.
The fifteenth annual event in our series, iConference 2020 will take place in Borås, Sweden, March 23-26, 2020. It is jointly hosted by the University of Borås, Sweden, and Oslo Metropolitan University, Norway.
The organizers invite papers on all current critical information issues. Contributions within the theme of Sustainable Digital Communities are particularly encouraged. Participants are invited to discuss sustainability from ethical, social, ecological, economic and technological perspectives. This includes trusting communities, equality, openness, privacy, cultural heritage and access to digital worlds.
All information scholars, researchers and practitioners are welcome to make submissions and participate at the iConference, whether they are with a member-school or elsewhere; affiliation with the iSchools organization is not required.
