NSF TO FUND iCONFERENCE DOCTORAL COLLOQUIUM
February 8-11, 2011
The iConference 2011 planning committee is pleased to announce that the National Science Foundation has agreed to provide funding for the iConference Doctoral Student Colloquium. This means doctoral student participants will receive financial assistance to help defer their expenses.
The application deadline for the iConference Doctoral Colloquium is November 1, 2010. Applications are encouraged from any and all doctoral students, regardless of whether or not they are enrolled in a member iSchool. More details are available on the conference website: http://www.ischools.org/iConference11/doctoral/
The 2011 iConference takes place February 8 through 11, 2011, in Seattle, WA. The Doctoral Colloquium itself takes place all day on February 11. The
Colloquium will provide doctoral students with the opportunity to present their work to senior faculty and one another in a setting that is relatively informal but that allows for the fullest of intellectual exchanges. Students will receive feedback on their dissertation and/or current research from participating faculty and student peers.
Applications to participate in the iConference Doctoral Colloquium are
encouraged from any and all doctoral students. We are seeking broad
representation, and participation is not limited to iSchool students.
The 2011 iConference is hosted by the University of Washington Information
School. Presenting Sponsors include the National Science Foundation, Microsoft Research, Intelius, and Serials Solutions. Additional support provided by Washington Research Foundation, WebJunction, and the Seattle Public Library.
