iSchool@UBC Research Day – Call for Participation (All Students)


We are thrilled to announce the iSchool@UBC’s Research Day 2013!

Infrastructures of Knowledge: Mediating Memories, Representing Relationships, Framing Futures

The iSchool@UBC, invites UBC faculty and students to join us in sharing the depth and breadth of our research endeavours at the intersections of information, people and technology. Our 4th Annual Research Day will be held on Friday, March 8, 2013. This event will showcase recent and ongoing research by faculty and students, a day set aside for reflecting on our work as designers, scholars and stewards of infrastructures of knowledge.


The day’s agenda will consist of an inspiring array of presentations and demonstrations.

**  Presentations:  Talks and Posters **

The presentation category is divided into short talks and posters of recent and ongoing work. The majority of submissions will be accepted as posters, with a few selected for presentation as a 10-minute talk. Poster presenters will participate in a Madness session early in the day, a fast-paced format during which poster authors will present the core ideas of their research in succinct, two-minute presentations.

* Demonstration

The demonstration category consists of tutorials, search interfaces, applications and other displays of recent and ongoing work that are best experienced through direct engagement
