designed to showcase exceptional interdisciplinary research and
development work from information school programs specializing in
social media. Students are asked to form interdisciplinary teams of
3-5 students to perform research, design, development or community
engagement exploring technological solutions to people’s real needs
around the theme of leveraging social media to foster lifelong
learning in everyday life. A representative team from each
participating school will be selected to attend and featured in a
presentation at a special session of the iConference in February of
2013. Visit the Social Media Expo webpage for more information:

outstanding work being done at iSchools, the iCaucus has instituted a
Doctoral Dissertation Competition, with awards to be given out at
iConference 2013. The Coordinating Committee will accept one
nomination from each member iSchool, and will select up to two best
dissertations. The winning nomination(s) will receive a cash prize of
$2,500.00 US. Applicants should have successfully defended the
doctoral dissertation and completed the doctoral degree (including all
final revisions, if any, and all final paper work) within the academic
year from July 1, 2011 to June 30 2012. The dissertation research can

methodology. Visit the Doctoral Dissertation Award webpage for more
information: http://www.ischools.org/iConference13/dissertation/
Submission deadline: September 15, 2012

* Special Workshop on Information Privacy: New this year, the
leadership of the iCaucus and the iConference 2013 organizers have
arranged for a special full-day workshop on Information Privacy. This
will consist of a one-day presentation of high-quality research in the
area of information privacy. It will include 1) invited papers by
scholars from participating schools and 2) submitted papers. We invite
scholars to submit their recent research manuscripts related to
information privacy and its various sub-fields. The workshop does not
have proceedings, and therefore will not preclude the authors to
simultaneously submit their work to other conferences or journals.
Similarly, we will consider manuscripts that are currently under
review elsewhere.: http://www.ischools.org/iConference13/info_privacy/
