The Future of Information

The iSchools represent an international organisation of over 120 universities. A common interest in all aspects of research and teaching about information unites them.

The scope is deliberately broad and methodologically agnostic, with a strong reliance on the social and behavioural sciences, as well as computing, artificial intelligence, and linguistics.

iSchools topics include data science, human-computer interaction, information organisation and access, bibliometrics, and information integrity. Information scientists share a common perspective on the importance of how intelligent creatures and machines understand the universe.

Home: Welcome


The iConference series is presented by the iSchools, a worldwide association of Information Schools dedicated to advancing the information field, and preparing students to meet the information challenges of the 21st Century.


Affiliation with the iSchools is not required—all information scholars, researchers and practitioners are welcome at the iConference.
