About iConference 2024

The iConference is the annual conference of the international iSchools organization and is open to all. It is one of the top venues for research in information science and related fields. This will be the 19th iConference. The hosts will be Jilin University and University of Tsukuba. The program of the virtual part will be based on three time zones (Europe/Africa, America, Asia-Pacific) and consider the locations of presenters, so that participants from a variety of countries can present their results without difficulty. The theme of iConference 2024 is “Wisdom, Well-being, Win-win”. We aim to realize well-being through information driven wisdom on international collaboration in different fields.

What are iSchools?

The “iSchool” means “Information Schools.” The iSchool movement, which began in the United States at the end of the 20th century, advocated for the importance of interdisciplinary schools that comprehensively teach about information, information technology (IT), and people and communities. iSchools were created in various countries besides the United States. A set of North American schools founded the organisation in 2005, and it incorporated as the “iSchools” in 2015.
Over 120 schools worldwide are now members of the international iSchools organization.
