Registration Opens for iConference 2018

 

Registration is now open for iConference 2018, with discounted rates available through Jan. 19, 2018. iConference 2018 will take place in Sheffield, UK, March 25-28.

The 2018 theme is Transforming Digital Worlds. The conference chairs have just finished the most competitive review process in iConference history, with 30% of completed research papers accepted for presentation. The conference will also present preliminary papers, workshops, interactive sessions, posters, early career colloquium, and three keynote presentations by Lynn Silipigni Connaway, Luciano Floridi and Susan Dumais.

The early registration rate is £360 ($427 USD) and £270 ($355) for students. This year’s registration includes lunch on all conference days, as well as coffee breaks, the opening reception on March 25, and banquet dinner on March 27. Combined, the 2018 rates represent the best overall iConference registration value in many years.
