Participation in this rapidly-growing movement could be a positive differentiator for graduate students and junior faculty, worthwhile as a complement to their participation in other major conferences.

August 30 is the deadline for short and long papers, to be peer-reviewed and archived in the ACM Digital Library. The same date applies to posters (other than those associated with the Doctoral Colloquium) and to proposals for workshops and alternative events. Have an idea for a new sort of conference session?

Doctoral Colloquium submissions are due November 1. A Junior Faculty & Postdoc Colloquium is now being organized by Eileen Abels and Jack Carroll, with details soon to appear on the web site.

iConference 2011: An open conference sponsored by Information Schools of North America, Europe, and Asia

Seattle, Washington, USA

February 8 - 11, 2011

***PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE: August 30, 2010***

Greetings to everyone interested in HCI and Information! Please forward to your colleagues!

We invite you to participate in the sixth annual conference sponsored by the iCaucus, a growing association of over 25 Schools, Faculties, and Colleges in North America, Europe and Asia that focus on Information. The iConference gathers researchers and professionals who share the goal of making a difference through the study of people, information, and technology. Under the banner "Inspiration - Integrity - Intrepidity" we seek to showcase diversity in research interests and approaches, and demonstrate how the field creates leadership and impact on a global scale.

The four days will include peer-reviewed papers, posters, and alternative events. Also being organized is a Doctoral Student Colloquium and a Junior Faculty & Postdoc Colloquium, popular venues at past iConferences. Papers and poster abstracts will be published in the ACM Digital Library. The aim is to build community and promote and share excellence in research on information challenges and opportunities. We have identified cross-cutting themes: social inclusion, context, materiality, personalization, memory. The 2011 iConference should be an exceptional venue for sharing insights and collaborating with others who share your passion and research interests. For more information on the range of topics visit the iConference web site, which includes more detail and paths to past iConferences. But do not feel constrained, this is a dynamic field that you will help shape!

The conference will be held at Seattle's Renaissance Hotel. The local host is the University of Washington Information School.
