Call for Proposals: ThesisIn3 Competition for Students
As part of the Information Science Trends (IST) Information Science Perspectives on Documenting Processes and Practices conference, the European Student Chapter (ESC) of the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) in collaboration with iSchools in are seeking student contributions to an online ThesisIn3 event where students are invited to present their research topics for theses and dissertations in three minutes.
This event is intended to encourage wider student participation in the Information Science field in a fun and inclusive space, allowing students to develop both their confidence and their presentation skills, and to offer their own insights and constructive feedback to their peers. Presentations will be adjudicated by your peers, with multiple prizes including Best Visuals and Best Explanation of Topic, etc.
This event will be run virtually via Zoom to ensure as many students as possible can attend. You can register for this event here. It will take place on June 20, 2023, 15.30pm – 17.00pm (CET).
Students are defined as BA/BSc, MA/MSc, or PhD students within Information Science (including related areas such as Library Science, Archival Science, Data Science, Information Management, Digital Humanities and Human Computer Interaction).
Please submit a short description (max. 5 sentences) of the topic of your (3 minute) presentation via Google Form here.
It is our aim to facilitate the participation of any student who enters a submission, however, submissions will be chosen at random should we receive more submissions than can be presented in the time dedicated to this event.
Presenters at the event may use a pdf, a video (uploaded in advance by Google Drive here) or a very short slide show.
Submissions to participate will be accepted until 18:00 CET on 12th June 2023 and we will be in touch with everyone who has submitted their proposal shortly thereafter regarding the outcome.
