iConference 2013 Scholarship in Action: Data, Innovation, Wisdom
CIRSS doctoral students, faculty, and associated faculty will be well represented at iConference 2013 "Scholarship in Action: Data, Innovation, and Wisdom". Faculty will lead workshops on varied topics such as workforce gaps in data science and data analytics and practical applications of computational scientometrics. CIRSS doctoral students will present on a wide array of topics, from the relationship between a unified ontology and integrated digital preservation systems to the exploration of macroeconomic indicators of data use.
iConference 2013 is hosted by the University of North Texas and will take place in Fort Worth, Texas. An iConference is an annual gathering of scholars and researchers concerned with critical information issues in contemporary society. iConference participants advance the boundaries of information studies, explore core concepts and ideas, and create new technological and conceptual configurations situated in interdisciplinary discourses.
