Description

We're proud to announce that Monash University is an official sponsor of iConference 2020. Following the theme of Sustainable Digital Communities, this year's event will be co-hosted by the University of Borås: Swedish School of Library and Information Science, and Oslo Metropolitan University: Department of Archivistics, Library and Information Science.

Launched in 2005, iConference is a premier initiative that attracts information scholars, researchers and practitioners from across the globe. It provides a forum for participants to share their insights on critical information issues in contemporary society and exchange new ideas and research in the field. With an abundance of engaging workshops, inspiring presentations and networking opportunities, many find the conference a rewarding and insightful experience.

In light of ongoing global health developments related to COVID19, the leadership at the University of Borås has advised the iConference organizers against continuing with an in-person international gathering and are instead calling for a virtual format.

The conference organizers are now in the process of transforming iConference 2020 into an interactive, all-virtual format. The organizers look forward to working with the iSchools community to bring this new conference plan to fruition.

A letter summarizing the situation has been sent to all registered participants. Detailed instruction on how the virtual conference will be conducted will be posted to the conference website as soon as it's available.
