The iConference 2016 Call for Participation has been posted. Deadlines this year are in September and October (more details below), with the conference in Philadelphia, PA March 20 – 23, 2016:

iConference 2016 takes place Sunday, March 20 through Wednesday, March 23, 2016, in historic Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. This year’s theme of “Partnership with Society” examines the dynamic, evolving role of information science and today’s iSchool movement, and the benefits to society. The conference includes peer-reviewed Papers, Posters, Workshops, Sessions for Interaction and Engagement, and iSchools Doctoral Dissertation Award, all interspersed with multiple opportunities for networking. Early career and next generation researchers can engage in the Doctoral Student Colloquium, Early Career Colloquium, and Undergraduate Student Showcase.

The iConference brings together scholars and researchers addressing critical information issues in contemporary society.
