iConference 2024

 
MARCH 16, 2024

The iConference is an annual, student-run conference at the University of Toronto Faculty of Information (iSchool). The iConference provides iSchool students with the opportunity to gain valuable professional development experience by presenting and sharing their academic and/or professional work in a supportive conference setting. This year, our one-day conference will present student research, have a faculty panel, workshops and an exhibition/showcase for students to display physical and digital items for all to see throughout the conference.

WHERE: iSchool Learning Hub (4th Floor, 140 St. George Street, Toronto, ON)

WHEN: March 16, 2024 from 10.00 to 17.00

Do I need to register/get a ticket to attend?: Yes! All current iSchool-affiliated people are given free entry with registration. Fill out our Eventbrite link below!

Can my non-iSchool friends come along? Sure! Partners, friends, speculative iSchool students and the i-Curious can come along! They also need to register at the Eventbrite link, and may attend for $5 (e-transfer mussa.ischool@gmail.com or pay cash on the day!).
